The bookkeeper accused of embezzling thousands of dollars from a local business pleaded not guilty today in San Joaquin County Superior Court in Lodi.
Cheryl Jacobson, whose last name was corrected to Jacobson-Thompson to reflect her married name during today's arraignment, allegedly took nearly $250,000 from Tokay Glass Co.
Although Deputy District Attorney Stephen Taylor previously said Jacobson-Thompson may have taken more than $400,000, the final figures given put the amount allegedly stolen at $243,691, including $103,691 in currency.
Bail remained set at $250,000.
