CONNELL, Wash.- The mayor pro-tem of Connell has pleaded innocent to theft charges.

Franklin County prosecutors say Monica Pruett, 57, embezzled more than  $150,000 from a farm in Mesa, where she worked as a bookkeeper.

Pruett remains free on bail on the condition she stays in the area, however the judge will let Pruett travel to the west side of the state on Thanksgiving to visit family.

The judge set Pruett's trial for December.
