Mount Gambier Member Troy Bell has faced court over charges of theft and dishonestly handling documents.
The ABC reports Bell has denied all wrongdoing.
Mr Bell has been placed on bail with a 2 thousand dollar cash surety to the court.
The prosecution has requested a longer adjournment of 16 weeks to give time for the 30 volumes of A4 materials to be sorted, copied and distributed to the court.
The case will return in December.
