Woman gets almost 2 years in prison for stealing $10k from Portland Women’s March
by KATU Staff, Thursday, March 19th 2020
A woman has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $10,000 in donations that should have gone towards the Portland Woman’s March. She was sentenced to nearly 2 years in prison, the Multnomah County D.A. said on Thursday.
Rebekah Katherine Brewis, 39, pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated theft in the first degree.
Brewis admitted that in 2017, she unlawfully and knowingly stole a large sum from the local woman’s march.
Investigation revealed that Brewis solicited donations from the community and donations were deposited into an account that Brewis controlled. When the march asked for the funds to be transferred, Brewis never transferred the money and law enforcement was notified.
The punchline, as reported by independent journalist Andy Ngo — Rebekah Brewis is no ordinary “she”:
