The trial for Van Zandt County commissioner Ricky LaPrade was expected to begin Thursday morning, but has been delayed.

The state asked the judge for a continuance in the trial because of a family illness of a witness.

Van Zandt County Commissioner Ricky LaPrade has been charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest, unlawful carrying of a weapon, and misapplication of fiduciary property.

Right now, LaPrade is only facing trial for one of those charges.

This trial is just for the felony charge of misapplication of fiduciary property. That's because LaPrade was in the county vehicle during his April arrest.

The court granted the continuance and the trial is expected to continue on January 16 at 9am.
