Nebraska Woman Reaches Plea Agreement In $2.5 Million Embezzlement Conspiracy

From KETV Ch.7 on 1/22/2015:

A Fremont woman tied to an embezzlement scheme that netted nearly $2.5 million has been convicted on three misdemeanor counts.

The Fremont Tribune reports that 51-year-old Kathy Springer-Hesman pleaded no contest Thursday to receiving stolen property and two counts of attempted filing of false tax returns. Prosecutors had lowered some charges and dropped others in return for her pleas. Her sentencing is set for March 27.

Springer-Hesman and 43-year-old Joleen Cameron are accused of helping Cameron's father, Dennis Hesman, steal from his employer, Gavilon.

The 66-year-old Hesman died in August. He was accused of creating fake grain receipts at the grain elevator he ran.

A court document says Cameron has worked out a plea deal and is asking that her arraignment hearing be delayed until Feb. 11.
