Jury deliberates fate of former Fourth and Hope director

By From page A5 | July 27, 2014

Following a weeklong trial in Yolo Superior Court, jurors in the Leona Jull grand theft case began deliberations on Friday.

Jull, 47, is accused of making more than $32,000 in unauthorized purchases — including food, gas, furniture and vehicle repairs — while serving as executive director of Fourth & Hope, a nonprofit organization in Woodland that provides food, shelter and other services to the homeless.

Jull, who has pleaded not guilty, testified in her own defense last week that the credit-card and check purchases were either legitimate business-related expenses or “mistakes” for which she reimbursed the organization.

Deliberations in the case resume on Monday.
