Ex-church nursery director seeks dismissal of theft charge
BRENTWOOD — A former director of a church nursery school in Londonderry is arguing that a judge should dismiss charges that she allegedly embezzled about $18,000, saying that she has also been charged with the same offenses in three Massachusetts courts.
Defense lawyer Sandra Bloomenthal argued in a court motion filed in Rockingham County Superior Court that a judge should dismiss a felony theft charge in New Hampshire because it amounts to Double Jeopardy and violates Wallace’s constitutional rights.
She faces a single count of theft by unauthorized taking in Rockingham County, a charge punishable by up to 7½ to 15 years in state prison.
Wallace was charged in Massachusetts between August and November, according to court records. She was indicted by a Rockingham County grand jury in October. No trial date has been set in the Rockingham County case.
She left her job last June 7 shortly after a reverend at the church decided that the parish bookkeeper would be taking over the accounting and oversight of the nursery school’s finances, according to a police affidavit by Londonderry police Detective Kristen Gore.
That same day, Wallace used the card to buy $555.86 in groceries at a Shaw’s Supermarket, police said.
