Ex-Rolling Hills Clerk Denied Parole
GLENROCK, Wyo. (AP) — A woman who pleaded guilty to embezzling $100,000 from the small Converse County town of Rolling Hills has been denied parole.
Alyssa Stewart is the town's former treasurer and clerk. She has been behind bars since 2009, when she was sentenced to two concurrent terms of 5 to 10 years.
The Associated Press reports that Stewart was up for release this month but the parole board denied it. Rolling Hills mayor Devonie Mueller (Dev-ah-KNEE' MYOO'-lur) says she's pleased with the board's decision.
Stewart has been ordered repay the town what she stole but so far she's only been able to repay $800.
She will be up for parole again next year.
