Oconto, NE (AP) - A judge has found a central Nebraska woman guilty of stealing more than $43,000 from the church where she was secretary.

The Dawson County Attorney's Office says 51-year-old Valerie L. Hendricksen, of Oconto, entered a no contest plea Tuesday to a felony charge of theft by taking.

Hendricksen was accused of embezzling funds from the American Lutheran Church in Cozad between 2009 and 2011, when she worked for the church as secretary. She was charged with theft in April 2013 following an investigation by the Nebraska State Patrol.

Hendricksen is scheduled to be sentenced in June. She remains free on bond.
