CLINTON — A former Ashford University employee has been charged making unauthorized cash withdrawals and purchases totaling more than $10,000.

Stacy Lynn Powers, 28, of Camanche was charged with first-degree theft, according to court records. She made her initial court appearance Friday in Clinton County District Court.

Powers worked as the college’s student development and activities coordinator from August 2008 to April 27, 2012, when she was placed on administrative leave, according to court records.

Her job at Ashford included oversight of the Student Government Association account, according to court records.

An Ashford official told Clinton police that between Jan. 2, 2009, and April 26, 2012, Powers made unauthorized cash withdrawals and debit card purchases for her personal use.

Ashford University spokesman Larry Libberton declined to comment about the case.

First-degree theft is a Class C felony, punishable by a maximum of 10 years in prison upon conviction.

    Ashford University has several people convicted of theft working for them. Ashford University must not do a background check. I know a girl living in Clinton who works there and she has been convicted several times for theft and even ask to leave other nursing homes because of theft and in one case the nursing home just wanted her to leave
