BEAVER CITY, Neb. (AP) - A western Nebraska woman is accused of misleading people who donated money to help an infant with cancer.
KRVN radio reports (http://bit.ly/TUcvK9 ) 19-year-old Kelsey Kennedy of Edison is facing a felony charge of theft by deception.
The Furnas County Sheriff's office says it learned in December that Kennedy had organized a fundraiser for a young boy with cancer. Authorities say she planned to sell t-shirts as a fundraiser.
The sheriff's office says more than $1,000 was raised, but none of it was turned over to the boy's family and no t-shirts were produced.
Kennedy was arrested and then released on $3,000 bond. She is scheduled to be arraigned in Furnas County Court on Monday.
