CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A judge has rejected a plea deal for a woman accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the Casper charity she worked for.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/WqS8DQ ) Lisa Ann Roth pleaded guilty to larceny as part of a deal by which the felony would be expunged from her record if she completed five years of supervised probation. But District Judge Catherine Wilking rejected the agreement Thursday, saying Roth “has taken similar actions with a previous employer.”

Roth’s plea and deal will be withdrawn.

She is accused of stealing nearly $9,000 from I-Reach 2, which helps people with developmental disabilities. Investigators say Roth collected money from the caregivers of participants in the program, endorsed the checks and deposited them in her personal bank account.
