A former employee of Notre Dame’s clinical law center faces 11 criminal charges for allegedly stealing nearly $200,000 from the University over seven years, according to a report from WNDU.

The employee, Jennifer Ihns, controlled the center’s finances and covered up multiple checks she wrote to herself, the report said.

Ihns allegedly admitted to stealing money from the center, according to the report, telling investigators she “had a financial need.”

Ihns is out of jail on bond and entered a preliminary plea of “not guilty” to the charges at a hearing Tuesday, according to court records. She will appear in court again June 8.
