OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) — An Ottumwa woman accused of stealing from dependent adults has pleaded not guilty.

Court records say 42-year-old Malia Ollom entered the pleas last week to 22 counts that included allegations of forgery, theft and dependent adult abuse. Her next court hearing is scheduled for Friday.

Authorities say Ollom worked for Crest Services and was responsible for managing the finances of adults under her supervision. Police were contacted Jan. 11 about irregularities that occurred in the clients' accounts between May last year and January.

Authorities say that among the incidents, Ollom fraudulently obtained and used a credit card using information from one of her clients and stole more than $5,700 from another by forging the victim's name on checks.
