A former Saline County assistant court clerk entered a not guilty plea during her arraignment in Saline County District Court last week.

Jodi Rezabek of Tobias entered the not guilty plea Tuesday, Sept. 29, in front of District Judge Paul Korslund.

Rezabek waived her right to a preliminary hearing and Korslund set a pre-trial conference in the case for Dec. 8 at 9 a.m. at the Gage County Courthouse.

The state is being represented in the case by Laura Nigro, special Saline County Deputy Attorney, who works for the State Attorney General’s office, while Rezabek is represented by Lincoln attorney Carlos Monzon.

Rezabek, 42, is charged with one count of theft by unlawful taking or disposition, a Class III felony.

The charge was filed Aug. 17, 2015, and states that in May 2015, Rezabek did take or exercise control over moveable property of the Saline County Court in the amount of more than $1,500.

During the arraignment, Rezabek was advised of her rights, including her right to trial by a 12-person jury.

A $1,000 personal recognizance bond was set in the case with Rezabek instructed not to leave the State of Nebraska without written permission from the court.

Also during the arraignment, the State provided the defense with 24 discovery items.

Those items included a copy of a check from the Saline County Court, written on a First State Bank account, to Rezabek for $15,500.
