Ex-car dealer’s trial delayed until August
Published: May 19,2010
COLUMBUS — The trial of former Parker Kia owner Tommy Parker has been continued until Aug. 24.
Parker, who was arrested in March 2009, was originally scheduled to stand trial yesterday. He was charged with sale of encumbered property without disclosing the lender for selling customer trade-ins and without paying off debt customers owed on the vehicles.
Before his Kia dealership closed, The Commercial Dispatch reports Parker had operated the business for more than 10 years.
Parker’s arrest came about three months after he shut the dealership’s doors and removed his inventory from the lot.
