Attorneys say some of a woman's money that was believed stolen by former guardian Jeffrey Schend has been located in her trust account.
Outagamie County Assistant Dist. Atty. Kyle Sargent didn't say Tuesday how much money investigators found, although court records suggest it was no more than about $20,000. Still, Sargent said the finding could affect the charges filed against Schend, who faces six felony counts and one misdemeanor count of theft.
"If they found the money, those charges are going to be dismissed or (reduced) depending on how much those amounts are," Sargent said.
Schend, 44, pleaded not guilty Tuesday, and Reserve Judge Larry Jeske scheduled a jury trial for Sept. 12.
