NORTH PLATTE -- Former Lincoln County Treasurer Shelli Franzen was sentenced Thursday morning to 12 months of probation for making multiple personal transactions with a county credit card.

In Lincoln County Court, Franzen, 44, pleaded no contest to an amended misdemeanor charge of theft by deception with a value of $501 to $1,499.

A misdemeanor count of official misconduct by a public servant was dismissed in the plea agreement.

Franzen was also fined $250 and ordered to pay $1,490.82 in restitution to the county.

She was initially charged with felony theft by deception, $1,500 to $4,999.

Court records say Franzen charged 76 personal transactions to a county credit card over an 18-month period, starting about six months after she was appointed treasurer in July 2019. The transactions, from Jan. 6, 2020, to July 27, 2021, amounted to $2,500.13.

Franzen resigned July 30.
