$10,000 bail set for 4A's embezzlement suspect
The woman accused of embezzling money from a non-profit will stay in the Lower 48 while she fights the charges.
An attorney for Paige Bohall entered a not guilty plea for her in an Anchorage courtroom on Thursday. Bohall appeared telephonically for her arraignment.
Bohall, 37, is charged with scheme to defraud after Four A’s—the Alaskan AIDS Assistance Association—said she stole more than $105,000 from the non-profit during her time as their finance manager. Charges for first-degree theft and falsifying business records have been dropped.
Anchorage Police Department detectives say Bohall not only misused her company credit card but also took money from individual accounts to pay her personal bills.
Bohall’s attorney, John Cashion, told Judge Kevin Saxby, Bohall is currently living in Nevada with her mother-in-law. He asked the judge to lower her bail to $2,500.
“She does have every intention of addressing this case and dealing with it forthright,” Cashion told the judge.
Saxby set her bail at $10,000 and ordered she surrender her passport too.
Bohall is set for a pretrial conference on April 3. Her trial is scheduled to begin May 14.
