Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden says a former director of the Syringa Hospital Foundation will need to pay nearly a quarter-million dollars in restitution for stealing from the central Idaho hospital.

A hearing is set for Friday, July 27, in a Grangeville courtroom, where 49-year-old Laurie Ann Rockwell is expected consider the restitution for her guilty pleas to grand theft and computer crimes. According to Wasden, Rockwell has agreed to pay the restitution.

This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that Rockwell, wife of Idaho County Commissioner James Rockwell, was accused of transferring money from the hospital foundation into her personal bank account.

The Tribune reports that Wasden's office filed restitution documents on Friday in a Grangeville 2nd District courtroom. The amount of the proposed restitution is $241,289.89.
