Struthers

A judge postponed a preliminary hearing for a Boardman woman accused of stealing funds from a pee-wee football team.

Lisa Farkas, 42, of Canterbury Lane appeared in municipal court Tuesday. Judge James Dunn rescheduled her pretrial hearing for June 4 after a request from city prosecutor Dominic R. Leone.

Farkas is the former president of the Struthers Little Wildcats football league. She is accused of stealing $2,500 from the organization and spreading the money out over six checks.

Police said they began investigating the theft after new leaders took over the organization five months ago and discovered the missing money.

Farkas pleaded not guilty Jan. 11 after she was arrested and arraigned on six charges of misdemeanor theft.

Farkas is free on $6,000 bond.
