Former Humane Society Executive Makes Initial Court Appearance

The former Executive Director of the Door County Humane Society made an initial appearance in Door County Circuit Court Monday to answer to felony charges of theft from a business setting and identity theft. Thirty nine year old Carrie Counihan is accused of taking nearly $23,000 from the organization and using it for personal purposes during her tenure. Eleven counts of identity theft are related to the use of the Humane Society’s credit card. Judge Peter Diltz set bail at $25,000 signature bond, banned her from having contact with the Humane Society and its board of directors, required that she obtain permission to travel outside the state of Wisconsin, said she must surrender her passport, and, may not manage any non-profits. Counihan’s next court date is a preliminary hearing on June second. Green Bay attorney Eric Wimberger is handling the defense. Assistant District Attorney Joan Korb is in charge of the prosecution.
