Church Bookkeeper Sentenced for Embezzlement in Idaho

The former bookkeeper at an Idaho Falls church has been sentenced to three days in jail for embezzling more than $2,000. Seventh District Judge Gregory Anderson sentenced 58-year-old Terri Lee Ward Johnson on Monday. He ordered her to pay $1,875 in restitution to Holy Rosary Catholic Church, perform 100 hours of community service and spend three years on probation. If Johnson completes probation and the terms of her sentence, Anderson said the charge could be expunged from her record. The Post Register reports Johnson was arrested on April 5 after church officials reported just over $2,000 missing. She pleaded guilty to felony grand theft in August as part of a plea agreement. Johnson was sentenced Monday.
