BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — A former director of the Bonita Springs Assistance Office was arrested last Thursday, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

Marjorie Kasell-Johnson, 40, of Bonita Springs, has been accused of pocketing nearly $50,000 in donations that were meant to help others in need.

Court documents show Johnson used the stolen money to pay her mortgage, dental work and to rent a Corvette.

Johnson was released on a $10,000 bond and is facing charges of larceny and second-degree grand theft.

The former director plead not guilty in court on Monday and was given a public defender.
