Former township planning board chairman Chairman Scott Kintzing will have to wait a little longer for his day in court.
Kintzing, who is charged with lewdness, was scheduled to appear in municipal court in Maurice River Township, Cumberland County on Tuesday, Jan. 15.
That hearing has been rescheduled to Tuesday, Feb. 5, because the court did not receive all the paperwork in the case in time for the hearing, said Harper Ewing, the municipal court administrator.
The charge against Kintzing was initially transferred to Mantua Municipal Court, but was then moved out of Gloucester County altogether to avoid any potential conflict of interest.
Kintzing was charged in November 2012 with with lewdness for allegedly stripping naked outside a local school after taking part in a pickup basketball game.
The incident happened about 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23, 2012, outside Oakview Elementary School, police said. It was captured on security footage of school grounds.
A female school custodian witnessed Kintzing changing his clothes outside the back of the school after the game, police said. The custodian told police Kintzing was completely naked when she confronted him. After the custodian confronted Kintzing, he drove off, according to police.
School officials were notified of the incident and contacted West Deptford police, who conducted an investigation.
If convicted of lewdness, Kintzing faces a maximum sentence of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
After serving for 31 years on the local planning board, Kintzing wasn't reappointed during the West Deptford committee's annual reorganization in January.
Mayor Raymond Chintall, a Republican, said his decision not to recommend Kintzing for reappointment wasn't related to the pending charge.
Kintzing's son, Hunter, ran unsuccessfully for a township committee seat as a Democrat in 2011, losing to Chintall and his running mate, Sam Cianfarini.
