A couple who were the former managers of the Airport Mini-Mall and Apartments will change their plea to a lesser charge of felony theft next Monday.
Cheryl Hansen, 67, and Paul Hansen, 63, allegedly kept over $50,000 of the Mall’s deposits.
The couple worked for nine-years as managers, getting use of the manager’s house near the mall and a thousand dollars a month when they left in May of last year.
The negotiated agreement with prosecutors was announced in Juneau Superior Court on Tuesday. It avoids a jury trial that had been planned for next week.
The issue of any restitution will likely be decided during a sentencing hearing that will be scheduled for later.
