Thomas trial expected to begin in late November
Gazette, 4 Nov 2007 (Carter).
The trial of former Prince George’s County school board member Nathaniel B. Thomas has been rescheduled to begin Nov. 26, more than a month after its original date.
Thomas, 26, is facing a third-degree sex offense against a former county student. He resigned in June soon after being charged. The trial was initially scheduled for Oct. 12, but was changed to Nov. 26 after Thomas’ Greenbelt-based attorney, Bruce Marcus, filed a continuance, which was granted by the court.

County school board chairman Owen Johnson said he would follow Thomas’ trial, but would only be interested as a one-time colleague.

More than 40 county residents applied to fill Thomas’ at-large seat. County Executive Jack B. Johnson selected Hyattsville education activist Amber Waller to fill the vacancy in September. Waller’s first school board meeting was Oct. 18.
