Wakefield, Neb. — An accountant charged with stealing nearly $110,000 from a northeast Nebraska church has pleaded not guilty.
Dixon County District Court records say 45-year-old Michael Pommer, of Wakefield, entered the written pleas Wednesday to 15 counts of theft. The records don’t show that a trial has been scheduled.
Pommer’s accused of taking the money from two bank accounts of Salem Lutheran Church without church officials’ authorization. The records say the bank account transfers occurred from June 24, 2016, to Sept. 5 this year.
A court affidavit says Pommer has since reimbursed the church nearly $115,000.
