GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The former executive director of a Colorado arts center who was accused of stealing from the organization has agreed to a restorative justice deal.

The Post Independent reports 31-year-old Christina Brusig has been ordered to complete 50 hours of community service, pay a $2,000 fine and write apology letters to those harmed by the closing of the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts.

Brusig was ousted from the arts center in January 2017 following the board’s concerns about financial mismanagement. She pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor theft charges in November after an investigation.

According to authorities, an audit found questionable reimbursements to Brusig and a number of unauthorized expenses.

The case will proceed to trial if the tasks stipulated in the agreement are not completed by the end of August.
