Thompson’s Court Appearance Rescheduled
The court date for former Kanabec County Sheriff Von Thompson has been pushed back. Thompson’s attorney was unavailable for his appearance originally scheduled for Friday. Thompson’s next appearance is rescheduled for January 23rd.
The former sheriff was considered a fugitive after disappearing for almost two weeks in November. Thompson is accused of exploiting more than $172,000 from a 91-year-old Mora man between October of 2007 and May of 2008. He posted $10,000 bail set by judge Krista Martin in Pine County Court last month.
