NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) —
The former director of North Platte's Housing Authorities has pleaded not guilty to theft and several other charges.
Lincoln County District Court records say 42-year-old Jennifer Smith, of Hershey, entered the pleas Monday. The records also say federal prosecutors may be filing a case against Smith.
The county Sheriff's Office has been working on the case with state and federal investigators. The case surfaced in February, after a bank alerted authorities about suspicious activity with an account.
