Guerneville woman suspected in church embezzlement held on $1 million bail

| September 27, 2011


A Guerneville woman suspected of embezzling $712,000 from a Santa Rosa church turned herself in Monday morning and was being held on $1 million bail.

Eleanor Zapanta, 51, the former business manager at the Center for Spiritual Living, had been wanted since prosecutors filed a 14-count criminal complaint against her last week.

Under an arrangement with her lawyer, Richard Scott, she appeared before a Sonoma County judge and was taken into custody.

Scott said he would visit Zapanta and review the charges before her Wednesday arraignment.

“She’s a good person and feels terrible about the accusations against her,” Scott said. “She’s said to me she wants to work hard to resolve this.”
