Linda Gale Reed's trial date set

COPIAH COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Linda Gale Reed, the woman accused of embezzling thousands of dollars from Moore Fabrication, is behind bars without bail. She was in the Copiah County Courthouse Friday for her arraignment.

The indictment says Reed wrote unauthorized checks to herself from her employer, Moore Fabrication, between 2010 and 2012, totaling at least $1500.

After pleading not guilty to all three counts, Reed's attorney requested that a bail be set because she is not a flight risk. The judge said he would consider the request.

"I'm not surprised the judge didn't set bail this morning," said Reed's attorney, John Reeves. "I recognize the fact that Mrs. Reed was gone for about six months and nobody knew where she was. That is a factor for the judge to consider."

Reed disappeared in 2012. But that disappearance suddenly took a turn when authorities said she was wanted for embezzling money from her former employer. She was later found in east Texas working a new job.

"It's not illegal to go to Texas," said Reeves. "Much has been said about that by the authorities down here, but the fact is that's not relevant to the case. We'll file a motion to exclude that. The only issue in the case is did the lady take the money or not."

Her hearing has been set for July 15th and her trial is expected to begin July 23rd.

The owner of Moore Fabrication in Copiah County will not comment about Reed's indictment.
