The attorney for the former Butler County Board of Elections director has retracted a request for her to enter rehab.

Xanthippie "Tippi" Slaughter originally requested to enter rehab for a substance abuse program.

Slaughter was fired from her position last month after being indicted for stealing $1700 from the Butler County Democratic Party.

Her next court date will be August 10th. Slaughter's lawyer tells FOX19 that she expected to enter a plea deal.
