LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The former executive director of the Lincoln YWCA has been sent to prison for stealing thousands of dollars while working there.

Online court records say 42-year-old Denise Serrett on Tuesday was given four to five years in prison and ordered to pay restitution of more than $27,800. She’d pleaded no contest to felony theft.

Serrett, who also is known as Denise Scholl-Serrett, had resigned in February last year, just days before she was sentenced to probation for stealing from a former employer.

YWCA officials audited the nonprofit’s books for December 2011 through February 2013 after learning that Serrett had stolen thousands of dollars from Omaha-based property management company DEI Communities, where she had been vice president of human resources.

Serrett has since moved to Brookings, S.D.
