ALLIANCE, Nebraska — A western Nebraska woman has been found guilty of stealing nearly $12,000 from a youth soccer team in Alliance.

KNEB-FM reports ( ) 30-year-old Erinn Merrill pleaded no contest Wednesday to two counts of attempted theft.

Prosecutors say Merrill used the soccer team's debit card to withdraw $8,180 cash in 39 transactions between September 2012 and August 2013. They say she also used the team card to make nearly $3,500 in purchases.

The Box Butte County attorney says she doesn't oppose a probation sentence but believes restitution needs to be made in full.

Merrill is free on bond and is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
