County Chief Magistrate Chris Mathis after a day of pre-trial motion hearings regarding the case.
Judge Grant Brantley set the tentative date for the trial on the week of June 10.
Mathis was charged in July 2010 with 27 various charges ranging from theft by taking, theft by deception and deposit account fraud in connection with cattle sales. Following his arrest he was released on $500,000 bond.
He was jailed after being indicted on 54 counts in August 2012 and reportedly leaving the state.
Mathis is accused of violating his oath of office by committing the offenses while chief magistrate, according to the indictments.
