SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A woman accused of stealing more than $38,000 from a Sioux City law firm has pleaded not guilty.

Court records say Kristen Hermelbracht entered a written plea to the theft charge Wednesday, and her trial is scheduled to begin July 5.

Authorities say that between July 2013 and November 2015, she stole the money by forging a partner’s signature on the law firm’s checks.

She also is accused of using the firm’s money to buy prepaid debit cards.
