INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - A hearing originally set for former Vigo County School Corporation Superintendent Danny Tanoos has been changed.
Tanoos was set to appear before a judge on Wednesday.
According to online records, his court date has been rescheduled for March 27th.
The reason listed on the court records was 'court's own motion.'
Tanoos and his attorneys were to appear before the judge to request that the charges be dismissed.
Tanoos' lawyers say Marion County is not the proper venue for two of the charges, and that the charging information is too vague.
Marion County prosecutors say a jury should hear this case.
Tanoos faces three felony counts of bribery.
He's accused of accepting favors in exchange for awarding contracts to an Indianapolis company.
Energy Systems Group received several contracts totaling more than $40 million to make improvements to the Vigo County Schools.
