According to a criminal complaint, Kathy Jung faces two counts of felony theft.

As the NSPCA president, Jung directed shelter operations and controlled the nonprofit's money for several years.

The money and cars donated to the nonprofit are intended to help the shelter as well as care for and adopt out homeless animals.

Jung resigned along with the rest of her board in 2019.

13 Investigates broke the news of Jung's arrest last week.

Each felony count comes with a possible prison term of one to five years.

Jung is due back in court on April 15.
