Hyrum woman accused of stealing from employer appears in court

LOGAN — A 38-year-old Hyrum woman accused of stealing money from her employer appeared in court, as attorneys asked for additional time to review evidence.

Hollie B. Shepherd was in 1st District Court Monday morning. She is charged with 23 felonies, including 17 counts of forgery, three counts of theft by deception, two counts of unlawful use of a credit card and one count of money laundering.

State attorney Aaron Jossie said Shepherd worked at a local screen printing company. While employed, she allegedly wrote several company checks to herself and then cashed them. The crimes are reported to have occurred between December 2015 and August 2016.

During Monday’s court appearance, defense attorney Marlin Grant told the court he was still waiting for all of the evidence in Shepherd’s case. He asked for more time to determine whether they wished to have a preliminary hearing scheduled.

Judge Thomas Willmore said he would allow more time and ordered Shepherd to appear again April 17.
