Allegation: From June 16, 2003, to Aug. 29, 2003, the defendant knowingly and intentionally appropriated money for the use or benefit of another without the authority of law; or knowingly kept a false account or made a false entry in an account relating to the money.

Probable cause:

Statements by David Marshall, chief administrative assistant of defendant; Kerry Steadman, Salt Lake County director of Human Resources; Alina Iorga, hired by defendant to work for South Valley Boys and Girls Club; Jennifer Schroeder, hired by defendant to work for the Boys and Girls Club.

In June 2003, the defendant hired Iorga as a community liaison to Eastern European immigrants related to health issues. The defendant never mentioned that Iorga would be providing accounting services for the South Valley Boys and Girls Club. In September 2003, the defendant hired Schroeder to replace Iorga as a Health Department employee but did not notify county officials that she would be working for the club under the supervision of the defendant's daughter, Aisza Workman, the club's chief financial officer.
