Clearmont resident Camie Paumer faces a number of embezzlement charges.

A Severance Motion in the case against alleged embezzler Camie Paumer of Clearmont was denied Thursday in 4th Judicial District Court.

Paumer's attorney, Jonah Buckley, was seeking to have separate trials for his client due to the fact that the charges against her are from incidents that occurred under two separate employers.

Paumer faces several misdemeanors from when she was employed with A&B Builders of Sheridan and numerous felonies for her alleged role in embezzling $15,000 from the Hand in Hand Childcare Center while she was employed as a bookkeeper.

District Court Judge John Fenn set a date of February 14th, 2012 to hold a 404(B) Hearing to determine what can and cannot be used as evidence at trial.

Buckley is seeking to have some of Paumer's prior history be held inadmissible in court, due to the relevance of her current charges. A pre-trial conference is scheduled for March 15th of next year. Judge Fenn also set the trial date for April 10th through the 13th of 2012.
