Three days have been set aside to hear evidence and testimony in the case of Chad Scarborough who has pleaded not guilty to a charge of Theft as a Class D Felony. Scarborough was arrested on Feb. 21 after he allegedly shoplifted an item from Smith Farm Store in Knox.

Starke County Deputy Prosecutor Mary Ryan will be representing the State in this case. The trial begins at 9 a.m. CT with jury selection.

Several other jury trials set for this week were rescheduled due to congestion in the court calendar.
