Woman intends to change plea in US Postal Service theft case

Posted: Updated:

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Court records say a northern Iowa woman accused of misappropriating money from the U.S. Postal Service intends to plead guilty.

Mason City television station KIMT reports (http://bit.ly/2bRWxzR ) that DeAnn Lewman has filed notice of her intention. A hearing on the change is scheduled for Sept. 1 in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids.

In May Lewman pleaded not guilty to two counts of misappropriation of postal funds and 42 counts of false entries while working as postmaster in Nora Springs. Prosecutors say that between May 2014 and January 2015, Lewman took nearly $3,000 in cash and stamps and took nearly $3,100 that was meant to buy Postal Service money orders in December 2014 and January 2015.
