Trial delay anticipated for chairwoman of Robinson Rancheria

Tracey I. Avila, the chairwoman of the Robinson Rancheria Pomo Indians of California, will likely see another delay in her trial on theft charges, The Lake County Record-Bee reports.

Avila, 51, is accused of stealing more than $60,000 from the Elem Pomo Tribe. She used to be the tribe's fiscal officer.

The trial was due to start February 17 but was delayed to March 15 due to Avila's reported health issues. Now her attorney is requesting another delay because he has a scheduling conflict with another case he's handling.

Avila has continued to serve as chair of her tribe since she was charged in September 201.
