DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A plea hearing scheduled for Thursday for the woman accused of stealing millions from a local bank was, indeed, postponed.
We told you Wednesday about Amy Scarpelli’s latest move in court. She is supposed to plead guilty on theft charges. She is accused of stealing $5-million from the Miamisburg US Bank where she worked.
Her lawyer wants a pre-plea report made before a hearing happens.
Scarpelli is on home detention in the meantime. She has permission to celebrate Easter with her family Saturday, but wants permission to allow her partner, Dena Lies, to spend time with Scarpelli at her home on Easter Sunday.
The court filing says, “For all the foregoing reasons, the Defendant prays the court grant her a contact visit to occur on Easter Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the home where Defendant is in lockdown as one of the last Holidays the parties may spend together. There need not be any adjustment to the lockdown conditions, because Defendant will remain in the home, and Ms. Leis, a nearby neighbor will simply come to Defendant’s home for Easter.”
Scarpelli and Lies currently have visitation rights on Friday evenings.
