Former Platte County employee pleads no contest to theft charge

COLUMBUS, Neb. – A former Platte County employee accused of stealing from the county while in charge of its adult diversion program has pleaded no contest.

The Columbus Telegram reports that 44-year-old Traci Nelsen entered the pleas Friday. The charges: two counts of theft, one of filing a false claim and one of evidence tampering. Prosecutors say more than $56,000 was taken from the county from 2014 to 2017.

One of the theft counts involved a theft from a Girl Scouts entity.

Nelsen’s scheduled to be sentenced July 11.
