NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Prosecutors have charged a former executive director of the Norman Board of Realtors with embezzlement after $147,000 was found to have been improperly spent.

Officials say 66-year-old Shirley Jean Holland faces a single embezzlement count over unauthorized expenses from the board and the local Association of Multi-List Services between 2008 and 2012.

The Norman Transcript reports that an affidavit says a law firm representing the Norman Board of Realtors and the Multi-List Service hired an accountant to perform a forensic audit. The audit revealed $147,000 in unauthorized charges and misappropriated funds.

The affidavit alleges Holland used the organization’s credit cards to purchase unauthorized personal items and would reimburse herself for trip expenses for which she allegedly used the agency charge cards.
