EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The Eau Claire woman accused of stealing thousands of dollars as a temporary employee for the finance department for Eau Claire County has entered a plea.

Susan O’Connor, 50, pleaded not guilty in Eau Claire County Court on Monday.

According to a criminal complaint filed back in August, O’Connor stole almost $20,000. She’s accused of drawing two checks, from county accounts and then, depositing them for her own use. The complaint says O’Connor took the money to pay bills, rent and a trip she paid for to Pennsylvania.
