A Doniphan woman accused of embezzling from the Grand Island Community Foundation has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Lisa Katzberg, 46, entered the plea Tuesday in Hall County District Court.
Katzberg was charged with a single felony count of theft over $1,500 in October of 2012. Court records
list just one victim -- her former employer, the foundation she ran.
that Katzberg embezzled thousands of dollars between June 1, 2009, and
June 15, 2012. Authorities say an auditing firm found a bank account
that Katzberg is alleged to have opened using foundation money to pay
for private expenses.
Foundation board chairwoman Lynn Cronk has said Katzberg resigned on June 15 and has repaid the foundation more than $27,000.
Katzberg started working with the foundation, which is an umbrella
organization that handles money from a variety of donors who wish to
help the community, in May 2001.
