Wyoming woman pleads guilty to theft from clients

GILLETTE (AP) -- The 30-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to stealing from the clients of a faith-based organization that helps convicted felons re-enter society in northeast Wyoming.

Yelizaveta "Lisa" Zolotova of Gillette pleaded guilty to felony theft as part of a plea deal. Zolotova was accused of stealing more than $100,000 from Volunteers of America clients over a three-year period.

The Gillette News Record reports that under the plea deal, prosecutors will recommend suspending a three- to five-year prison sentence in favor of a six-month split sentence in the Campbell County jail. In addition, she can argue for straight probation at her sentencing hearing on Aug. 21.

Fight blamed on gang colors

ROCK SPRINGS (AP) -- Police have arrested three motorcycle gang members after a bar fight in Rock Springs over a rival gang member's vest with patches that identify the gang to which he belonged.

The incident occurred about 3 p.m. Monday and resulted in the arrest of three members of the Sons of Silence Motorcycle Club.

They say one member of the gang attacked a member of the Bad 7 bike gang and took his gang patches while the other two prevented other bar patrons from intervening.

The Bad 7 gang member was treated for injuries to his head and arms at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County.

The three were arrested Wednesday and were in custody at the Sweetwater County Detention Center.
