Jul. 17, 2017
EARLVILLE, Iowa (AP) — A former official accused of making unauthorized payments of her debts from the account of a youth sports organization has pleaded not guilty.
The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2u1dEaG ) that Kimberly Snyder, of Earlville, has entered a written plea to a charge of fraudulent practice.
A state audit says the more than $8,500 in improper disbursements including more than $4,000 in utility and loan payments for Snyder's personal residence or personal vehicle. She'd been secretary/treasurer of the Earlville Athletic Association from 2012 until its board removed her from the post last year.
Officials also say they discovered nearly $2,900 in purchases from vendors not related to the association's operations, such as a pizza parlor, a flower shop and a satellite TV company.
