Hearing date set in Noblin embezzlement case
SoVaNow.com / July 01, 2013A July 12 court date has been set in the ongoing criminal prosecution of former Halifax County Sheriff Stanley Noblin, who has been charged with embezzlement and forgery stemming from the alleged misuse of funds under his control while sheriff.
Noblin, who was charged in November 2012 with 21 felony counts of embezzlement and forgery of public documents, is being represented by Altavista lawyer Glenn Berger. The prosecution is led by Southampton County Commonwealth’s Attorney Eric Cooke, who was appointed as special prosecutor to oversee the case after local officials recused themselves, citing potential conflicts of interest.
The trial judge is J. Leyburn Mosby Jr. of Lynchburg, a retired judge of the 24th Judicial Circuit.
The Virginia courts case information website states the July 12 hearing, slated for 10:30 a.m., has been called to consider motions and other pre-trial matters.
Noblin is suspected of having embezzled up to $113,180 from the department he once led.
If convicted, the former sheriff could serve a maximum of 20 years on each of seven embezzlement charges and 10 years on each of 14 forgery charges. Noblin served as sheriff from 2007 until 2011, when he lost his bid for re-election to the current sheriff, Fred Clark.
