A preliminary hearing was scheduled Thursday in Sheridan County Circuit Court for a Sheridan woman charged with six counts of Felony Forgery. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter was there and has the story.

The hearing for 25-year-old Miranda Mraz began with Circuit Court Judge Shelley Cundiff informing Mraz that her request for a court appointed attorney had been denied due to the affidavit being filled out improperly.

After Mraz expressed that she was still interested in having a court appointed attorney represent her, Judge Cundiff approved the request and asked the defendant if she'd like to waive her right to a speedy preliminary hearing and reschedule the hearing when her legal counsel could be present. Mraz asked the Court for a continuance, which Cundiff granted and said that the hearing would be rescheduled as soon as possible.

Mraz has been charged with six counts of Felony Forgery, and one count of misdemeanor theft for allegedly altering customers tips while she was employed as a waitress at the Firewater Bar and Grill on North Main in Sheridan. The Wyoming Supreme Court recently overturned a Felony Larceny conviction against Mraz that stemmed from an incident that occurred at the Eagles Club at 5th and Main in Sheridan in April of 2012.
