Ex-employee gets jail, probation for stealing from landfill

YORK, Neb. (AP) — A Lincoln woman has been given jail time and probation for stealing from the York city landfill.

York County District Court records say 59-year-old Lynn Rasmussen was sentenced Monday to two years of probation and 90 days in jail. The jail time was divided into three increments: 30 days to be served immediately and 30 days to be served starting Dec. 30, unless waived by the court, and 30 days to begin Dec. 30, 2020, unless waived by the court.

She pleaded no contest in November to misdemeanor theft after prosecutors lowered the charge from a felony. Rasmussen also agreed to pay restitution of nearly $12,600.

Court documents say Rasmussen ran the scale house and accepted payments for material dumped at the landfill. She kept some cash payments for herself.
