Woman pleads not guilty to embezzlement

SHERRILL SHERRILL A 62-year-old Roseville woman pleaded not guilty to a charge of embezzlement by an agent or a trustee at her 13th Circuit Court arraignment held Tuesday.

Kathryn M. Sherrill, formerly of Leelanau County, is currently free on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.

Sherrill is accused of taking between $1,000 and $20,000 from a Leelanau Township man she was taking care of, according to a court report.

The charge stems from a case in which Sherrill was an appointed conservator for the man but allegedly used funds entrusted to her for her own personal expenses.

The money was allegedly taken between December 2012 and July, the report said.

Sherrill had pleaded guilty on Dec. 6 to a charge of failure to appear for arraignment when she didn’t show up for court. A bench warrant had been issued, but was recalled when she made a court appearance.

Embezzlement by an agent or trustee is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 or three times the amount embezzled, whichever is greater.
