MARINETTE, Wis. - A former treasurer for the Wausaukee Rescue Squad has been ordered to stand trial on charges she stole money from the agency.

Forty-one-year-old Amanda R. Stumbris waived her right to a preliminary hearing in court Monday. Prosecutors say she embezzled more than $132,000 over three years.

According to the criminal complaint, Stumbris used a rescue squad debit card to make cash withdrawals. She also allegedly purchased satellite television service and movies. Investigators say she also covered gambling expenses.

Stumbris is due back in court for an arraignment on Dec. 14.

She faces three felony counts of theft in a business setting-more than $10,000 and one felony count of theft in a business setting-between $5,000 and $10,000.

If convicted on all counts, she could spend up to 36 years in prison.

A call left for Stumbris' defense attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday.
