ISLAND CITY, Ore. (AP) - A former city recorder in Oregon accused of abusing her governmental power has received a three- to four-week extension for her plea hearing.

The Observer reported (https://bit.ly/2qeX5bV ) Thursday that Judy Rygg’s attorney requested the extension because a plea offer from the district attorney’s office had been late and includes more than 1,000 pages of evidence.

The plea hearing has been rescheduled for May 23. Rygg has been charged with eight felony counts of first-degree theft, nine felony counts of computer crime, a misdemeanor count of second-degree theft and one count each of first-degree official misconduct and tampering with public records.

Rygg is accused of writing about $22,000 worth of reimbursement checks to herself. She also is accused of using Island City’s fuel card for about $21,000 during a four-year span.
