The trial date for the Alison Krauss impostor has been rescheduled.

Peggy Sue Evers, 53, had her trial reset to Sept. 18.

She'll return to Washington County Circuit Court after being charged with violating her parole.

Evers was convicted of conning an elderly Fayetteville man by pretending to be country music star Alison Krauss.

On Jan. 16, Evers pleaded guilty to theft by deception before Circuit Judge Mark Lindsay, receiving eight years probation. She was ordered to pay nearly $73,000 in restitution to the elderly victim and to return his vehicles. Evers also has signed the deed to his house back over to him.

Police said Evers convinced a 75-year-old man she was Krauss and got him to sign his $245,000 home over to her in 2013. His bank account also fell by $40,000, according to an arrest warrant affidavit in Washington County Circuit Court.
