Kennedy, Minn., woman admits to stealing from church

| June 23, 2010

A woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to stealing nearly $30,000 from the Maria Lutheran Church in Kennedy, Minn.

Margie Holmgren, who was the treasurer of the church, was charged April 2 with three counts of felony theft.

Holmgren’s plea agreement calls for her to be sentenced on one count and receive a stay of adjudication on the other two counts for 10 years. In that time, she would have to pay back the money she stole.

Kittson County Attorney Roger Malm said Holmgren would be on supervised probation for those 10 years. There’s a chance she could face local jail time as well, he said.

Holmgren, 47, of Kennedy, does not yet have a sentencing date.
