Former housing authority director gets probation, jail time

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) – A former director of the North Platte Housing Authorities has been given three years of probation and 24 days of jail time.

44-year-old Jennifer Smith was sentenced Monday. She’d pleaded no contest to felony theft.

Prosecutors dropped other charges in exchange for her pleas.

Court documents say Smith obtained a man’s property by deception and proceeds that were, “derived, directly or indirectly, from racketeering or from collection of unlawful debt.”
