BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A woman accused of bilking investors in a North Dakota oil patch trucking firm is asking for another delay in her trial.

Sarah Creveling was originally scheduled to go on trial Feb. 23 in Bismarck on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and money laundering. The trial was delayed first to allow Creveling to testify in her ex-husband’s murder trial and again to allow her to consider a plea deal.

James Henrikson, Creveling’s one-time husband and business partner, was convicted on murder-for-hire charges involving the deaths of two former oil patch associates. Henrikson was sentenced to two consecutive terms of life in prison.

Creveling says another delay is needed in her proceedings because she has a new lawyer.
