A former director of the Grand Island Community Foundation has reached a plea agreement with Hall County prosecutors.

46-year-old Lisa Katzberg was scheduled for a pretrial hearing on Thursday, with a trial in April.

But a motion filed Thursday by Katzberg's attorney says the hearing and trial aren't necessary because of the agreement. A change-of-plea hearing has been requested for next week.

The motion didn't provide any details on the agreement.

Prosecutors say Katzberg embezzled thousands of dollars between June 1, 2009, and June 15, 2012. Foundation officials have said Katzberg has repaid the foundation more than $27,000.

The foundation is an umbrella organization that handles money from a variety of donors who wish to help the community.
