|A second probable cause hearing scheduled yesterday in Grantsville for accused Calhoun bank robber Richard Dewayne Vance, 22, of Orma, was rescheduled because of problems related to attorney representation.|
Vance (left) appeared without an attorney last week, after which he requested a court appointed representation.
A new hearing has been set for Monday, December 13 at 10:30 a.m. before magistrate Rick Postalwait.
Last week, prosecutor Rocky Holmes said Vance was advised regarding the necessity of an attorney, indicating Vance had said he was hiring a private attorney to represent him.
Vance appeared before Judge David Nibert in Spencer last Thursday regarding Vance's violation of probation in Roane County linked to earlier larceny charges.
He could be sentenced to 1-10 years on those charges after fleeing to Texas.
Vance was extradited from Texas by Roane County authorities.
He is represented in the Roane case by attorney John Oshoway.
Bond for the Calhoun bank robbery has been set at $90,000.
Vance is facing two charges in Calhoun, one for robbery in the first degree for the robbery of Calhoun Banks at Arnoldsburg, and a second charge of grand larceny for the theft of an ATV used in the robbery.
He is being held in Central Regional Jail.
