GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - The 30-year-old Gillette woman has pleaded not guilty to stealing from the clients of a faith-based organization that helps convicted felons re-enter society.

The Gillette News Record reports (https://bit.ly/2iXU0Kp ) that Yelizaveta “Lisa” Zolotova is accused of stealing more than $100,000 from Volunteers of America clients over a three-year period. Felony theft carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.

Court documents say Zolotova quit June 1 after the VOA’s chief financial officer questioned her about discrepancies in the accounts of VOA residents.

Authorities say Zolotova’s job was to act essentially as the bank for VOA clients.

Zolotova is accused of taking clients’ money and depositing it into her own account or putting the money on a prepaid Visa card in her name.
