A Dickinson County woman is going to jail for 90 days and spending 2 years on probation for stealing from her church.
45-year-old Lynn Ackerman of Foster City was once the treasurer of Zion Lutheran Church in Felch.
She’d originally been accused of embezzlement by an agent or trustee worth $20,000 to $50,000.
But she got the charge reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor.
She pleaded guilty in November to attempted larceny from a building.
Ackerman will also have to pay a little more than $39,000 restitution.
An audit last year found more than $25,000 missing from church accounts.
Ackerman had also been accused of writing church checks to herself for more than $8,000.
The embezzlement is said to have happened from January 2005 to last January.
