North Idaho woman accused of stealing $500,000 from non-profit appears in court
KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho — The North Idaho woman accused of stealing $500,000 from the non-profit she worked for appeared before a judge Monday.
Lori Isenberg appeared in Kootenai County Court Monday afternoon, where her attorney asked the judge for a continuance, which was granted.
Her defense team now has until October 29 until her next appearance.
Isenberg is being held on a $500,000 bond. If she does post bail, she’ll have to surrender her passport, remain in Kootenai County, and wear a GPS tracking device.
Isenberg is accused of embezzling $500,000 from the North Idaho Housing Coalition, where she worked as the executive director.
She skipped her first two court appearances last spring and a judge ordered a bench warrant for her arrest.
Isenberg turned herself in on July 26.
The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office is calling her a person of interest in her husband’s death. Larry Isenberg was found dead in Lake Coeur d’Alene on March 1.
Isenberg says he drowned after falling into the water while the two were out on a boat, but an autopsy showed no signs of drowning. A toxicology report revealed Larry Isenberg had lethal levels of Benadryl in his system when he died.
So far, Isenberg has not been charged in her husband’s death.
