LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A trial date has now been set for USA Harvest Founder Stan Curtis more than one year after he was charged by the U.S. Attorney with stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the charity he created.
Curtis was most recently ruled competent to stand trial after a series of physical and mental health setbacks. He's accused of spending the money on personal entertainment and other expenses.
His attorney Scott Cox early on had planned for Curtis to plead guilty in a deal, but things changed after the health issues with Cox saying Curtis is not capable of helping him in his own defense.
Now a trial date has been set for July 8 and is expected to last four days. Cox told us on Jan. 13 he is now preparing for the trial.
