CHARLESTON, MO (KFVS) -

The tentative new trial date for the former Mississippi County sheriff is Nov. 11, 2018.

A continuance was granted for the jury trial of former Mississippi County sheriff Cory Hutcheson.

Hutcheson was set to go trial April 2-6 on charges of robbery and making a false statement. However, prosecutors asked for a continuance, in part based on Hutcheson's recent federal indictment and publicity concerning the death of a Tennessee man in the Mississippi County Jail.

The judge handling the case granted that continuance and will hold a hearing to set a new trial date on April 4.

Hutcheson is accused of taking a document from his sister-in-law's employer in March 2017.

He had a pre-trial hearing in December 2017.
