PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Girl Scout leader accused of stealing her young scouts' IDs is free on bond after pleading not guilty to the charges in Northwest Florida.
Federal prosecutors say Holly Barnes used the young scouts' Social Security numbers and netted $87,000 in a tax scheme.
She was allowed to remain free on bond if two computers were removed from her home. The mother of four was also ordered to stop
coaching a local soccer team and undergo a mental health assessment.
Trial is set for November fifth on the charges, which include 19 counts of filing false IRS claims and 15 counts of identity theft.
