The former Huron dispatcher who confessed to stealing from a police fingerprinting fund is trying to avoid a jail sentence.

David Michel, 44, faces a felony theft charge in Erie County Common Pleas Court. A hearing scheduled for Monday wasre-scheduled for Oct. 9 to give the probation department time to investigate whether Michel qualifies for a diversion program, a court spokesman said.

The Erie County Prosecutor's office filed a bill of information in July, allowing Michel to avoid having his case heard by the grand jury, said his attorney, Robert Reno.
