CONWAY — An October trial date has been set for a former University of Central Arkansas chief of staff accused of providing a student a master key so the student could steal tests from professors' offices.

Faulkner County Circuit Judge Charles Clawson set an Oct. 28 start for Jack Gillean's week-long trial, which was moved from Faulkner County to Van Buren County because of pretrial publicity.

Gillean faces charges of three felony counts of commercial burglary, one felony count of fraudulent insurance acts and one misdemeanor count of issuing a financial statement. Gillean, who resigned from the UCA post last year, is set to be tried on the burglary charges first.

Gillean didn't speak during the brief hearing.

He is next due in court on Oct. 4 for a final pretrial hearing.

Tuesday's hearing had originally been scheduled last week before being moved to Monday, when it was shifted at the last minute because Gillean's attorneys had commitments in other courts.
