A judge set a new trial date in the welfare fraud case of former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal – a white woman who posed as black – and now goes by Nkechi Diallo.

Diallo lived a double life in the Pacific Northwest for years. Friends believed she was an African American whose passion for civil rights propelled her to the position of NAACP chapter president in Spokane. 

Now, attempts by her legal team to evade justice have hit a roadblock.

Judge Michelle Szambelan told Diallo’s attorney Bevan Maxey at hearing this morning that they’ve had plenty of time to prepare for her trial. Diallo – who claimed to be a black woman until outed by her parents in 2015 – was arrested for 1st degree Theft by Welfare Fraud, Perjury in the 2nd Degree and False Verification for Public Assistance – back in May 2018.

Investigators allege that a few months after her parents exposed her as being white, Dolezal started falsifying her income to claim public assistance – stating that she was getting by on a few hundred dollars a month, given as gifts from friends.

According to the court documents, Diallo was able to collect nearly $9,000 in state financial assistance, starting in August of 2015 through November of 2017. But a state investigation of her banking records found that she had deposited more than $80,000 during that same period.

Since the arrest, the case has languished on the court docket – with numerous rescheduling since Diallo’s arraignment back in June. Judge Szambelan told attorneys in the case that further delaying proceedings was getting old. She set a trial date for March 4th, 2018.

The case against Diallo began in March 2017 after a state investigation of her bank records revealed she received money from sales of her autobiography – titled "In Full Color," speaking engagements, soap making, doll making, and miscellaneous artwork.
