Iowa woman who stole from hospital auxiliary gets probation

CRESCO, Iowa (AP) — A northern Iowa woman has been given two to five years of probation for stealing thousands of dollars from a hospital auxiliary.

Howard County District Court records say 58-year-old Rebecca Creger, of Cresco, was sentenced last week. She was given a deferred judgment and ordered to pay restitution of $20,275. A deferred judgment allows Creger’s conviction to be removed from court records if she fulfills her probation terms.

She’d pleaded guilty to ongoing criminal conduct. Prosecutors dropped a theft charge in return.

Authorities say Creger wrote checks to herself in 2017 while she was treasurer of the Regional Health Services of Howard County Hospital Auxiliary. She told an investigator that she needed the money for medical bills and that she wanted to pay it back.
