A Firth woman who went to prison last month for embezzling now is being sued by her former employer for the $269,693 it says she stole over five years.

Kathleen Navratil, 35, pleaded guilty to theft by unlawful taking over $5,000 for taking money from the Nebraska Petroleum Marketers & Convenience Store Association between Oct. 13, 2015, and July 31, 2018.

On April 25, District Judge Kevin McManaman sentenced her to two to six years in prison for it.

Friday, Nebraska Petroleum Marketers Inc. sued Navratil, who is serving her sentence at the women's prison in York, saying she took the money starting in 2013 until 2018 when it terminated her from her job as secretary, bookkeeper and account manager.
