Lisa Roth Admits To Taking Money From Development Disabilities Assist Program; Judge Might Reject Plea Deal

A Casper woman is admitting that she stole money from an organization that assists people with development disabilities, but a judge might not go along with the plea deal.

Lisa Roth has pleaded guilty to one charge of larceny.

Investigators with the Casper Police Department say from January until September 2013, Roth was in charge of some of the money involved with I Reach 2.

She was in charge of collecting money from the caregivers of participants of the I Reach 2 program, and then give some of the money to the participants to use at their leisure, while the rest was to be kept in a bank bag.

Upon doing an audit, the program discovered about $5,400 missing and Roth quit a few days later after being confronted about the issue.

When interviewed Roth admitted to cashing some of the checks at her personal bank, which was against company policy

Investigators determined that receipts for purchases for the participants were kept and logged on logg sheets, but found that the loggs were sometimes inaccurate.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek first time offender status for Roth, which means if she completes a 1-to-5 year probation term, the guilty verdict would be struck from the record.

She would also have to pay restitution.

Roth is free on bond, and will be sentenced at a later date, however, Judge Catherine Wilking stated she may reject the plea deal, at the time of sentencing, because of the extreme vulnerability of the victims in the case.
