By Frances Ruth Harris CHESTER — Chester Supervisor Alex Jamieson's court date has been rescheduled to Tuesday, July 17. The case was scheduled to be heard on Monday morning in Albany County Court, with Jamieson's name appearing on the day's agenda. In Judge Peter Lynch's courtroom Monday it was announced Jamieson's court date would be rescheduled. The Albany County Clerk's office said the date has not yet been decided. The clerk's office said the attorney general's investigators were still looking into the case. Jamieson was arrested in June and charged with grand larceny for collecting unemployment benefits while also being paid as a town official, according the NYS Attorney General's press office. He faces one count of third-degree grand larceny and 22 counts of first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, all felonies. He said the case has nothing to do with his duties as supervisor and that he would not be stepping down.
