BEAVER CITY — A western Nebraska woman is accused of misleading people who donated money to help an infant with cancer.
Kelsey Kennedy, 19, of Edison is facing a felony charge of theft by deception.
The Furnas County Sheriff's Office said it learned in December that Kennedy had organized a fundraiser for a young boy with cancer. Authorities said she planned to sell T-shirts as a fundraiser.
The Sheriff's Office said 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 bail. She is scheduled to be arraigned today. — AP
