A new trial date has been set for a Casper woman, accused of defrauding donors out of money for her son who was supposedly near death.

Krishelle Layton will have her trial on the week of January 5th, in a case where she has pleaded not guilty to one charge of obtaining goods by false pretenses.

Originally scheduled for late September, the date was changed, after both the prosecution and the defense agreed that it’s going to take some time, to get a number of out of state witness in to testify.

Prosecutors say not long after Layton and her son, also known as Ninja Dorian, moved to Casper, she began telling a number of charitable donors between December 2013 and March 2014, that her son had terminal brain cancer, and was near death’s door.

In some instances, she contacted the organizations and in others, the organizations contacted her, but Layton’s defense says she did not make contact with anyone.

Upon contacting the examining doctor, the Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigations learned, that the brain tumor that Ninja Dorian had, was not terminal and prosecutors mentioned at her preliminary hearing, that a recent scan showed the tumor was no longer present.

Further investigations by the DCI shows that of the money raised through various fund raisers for Ninja Dorian, no receipts were turned in to show what it was spent on.

Layton is free on $2,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
