ABERDEEN, SD -
An Aberdeen woman is scheduled to plead guilty to not reporting a felony in an alleged embezzlement case at a crisis shelter.
Court documents show that Christi Mack is to plead guilty on July 20 to misprision of a felony, which is punishable by up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Mack initially pleaded not guilty to embezzling from Safe Harbor in Aberdeen while she was office manager.
Former shelter director Shirelle Stadel also has pleaded not guilty to embezzlement, which carries a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
The shelter that serves seven counties has since hired a new director and office manager.
