The former Warren County assessor currently has no counsel and requested time to find an attorney.
An evidentiary hearing was set for September to consider revoking the probation of former Warren County Assessor Wendy (Nordwald) Kozma.
Judge Sonya Brandt, of Osage County, set the hearing at 9 a.m. Sept. 15.
Kozma requested a continuance of "several weeks" so that she could secure an attorney. She appeared in courtroom 1 at the Warren County Courthouse on June 2 without counsel. She told the judge that her previous attorney, Timothy Hunsaker, was only contracted through the criminal proceedings and that she has not found a new attorney to represent her.
Prosecutor Kelly King said Kozma recently made three restitution payments, but had only received $100 prior. She did not object to the continuance.
Kozma still owes more than $200,000 in restitution payments she agreed to make in lieu of a 10-year prison sentence.
Both Brandt and King appeared at the hearing remotely. The June 2 hearing was not recorded, and the judge denied The Warren County Record permission to record audio. The hearing was scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Technical difficulties prevented the hearing from starting until 10:12 a.m. and it ended at 10:16 a.m.
