The trial for a Goshen Township dog breeder accused of theft in an alleged puppy fraud case will be continued.

During an arraignment hearing Tuesday morning, Judge Anthony Donofrio's court set the jury trial for 40-year-old April Waidman for July 15 at 8:30 a.m.

However, court employees tell 21 News Waidman's attorneys are filing a motion to have that date continued. Court records now show a pretrial hearing set for August 13.

Waidman is charged with at total of 39 theft charges including 27 charges of theft, a felony in the fifth degree and 12 counts of petty theft, a misdemeanor in the first degree.

The charges stem from nearly $20,000 allegedly pocketed from customers who were looking to purchase a puppy from Waidman, but never received one.
