The defense in the case of the former Executive Director of the Door County Humane Society was given a little more time to prepare its case during a status hearing in Door County Court Monday. Thirty nine year old Carrie Counihan faces felony charges of theft from a business setting and identity theft. Her attorney, Eric Wimmer of Green Bay, requested 45 more days to study the information compiled by the prosecution. Judge Peter Diltz granted the request and set the next court date for September 23rd. The prosecution did not object. Counihan is accused of taking nearly $23,000 from the organization and using it for personal purposes. She is also charged with 11 counts of identity theft in connection with the use of the Humane Society’s credit card. Bail of $25,000 continues, along with a number of provisions set down by Judge Diltz at a previous court hearing. Counihan has entered not guilty pleas to the charges.
