MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Mason City drug treatment center has filed a counterclaim against a former employee who was cleared of embezzlement from the facility.

In October, Tracy Hassman filed a lawsuit against Prairie Ridge Addiction Treatment Services of Mason City and its executive director, accusing them of libel and slander. Hassman, of Nora Springs, had charges of stealing more than $10,000 from the agency dismissed in March.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1BQAb7b ) that Prairie Ridge and Director Jay Hansen have filed a counterclaim, doubling down on their accusation of embezzlement. They’re seeking at least $30,000 from Hassman, saying in their counterclaim that that’s the amount Hassman wrongly took from the facility.
