MINDEN, Nev. (AP) - A 45-year-old woman accused of embezzling more than $40,000 from a Douglas County church has waived her preliminary hearing in East Fork Justice Court.
Tracey Taylor of Carson City is scheduled to appear Sept. 17 in Douglas County District Court.
She has been charged with a felony embezzlement count in the theft of $41,727 from the Corpus Christi Catholic Church in a check-cashing scheme.
Taylor is accused of writing multiple checks against the church bank account that went to herself, Walmart, two banks, JCPenney and others.
According to court documents, she has been suspended from her part-time job at the church. She had worked for the church since 2006.
Taylor has been a teacher at St. Teresa of Avila Catholic School in Carson City.
