ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Former Albany State Foundation employee Angela Getter presented a "letter of waiver" instead of appearing in person to enter her not guilty plea in Dougherty County court.

In this way, her attorney entered her plea to theft charges without Getter having to go to court.

A bench warrant had been issued for the arrest of the former Albany State Foundation Executive Director because of a mistake in the warrant.

According to the court clerk, there was a misunderstanding, and Getter was not be sought.

Prosecutors say Getter and foundation Business manager Sean Stanley wrote checks to themselves for between $12,000 and $15,000  for "professional services."

Stanley entered his plea the same way Monday through his attorney, Mark Phillips.

The theft was discovered during a university audit after Getter and Stanley resigned in 2008.
