West Virginia Woman Sentenced To Prison For Embezzling As Much As $200K From Municipality

From the Register-Herald on 5.21.13:

Monroe Circuit Judge Robert Irons sentenced a former Alderson Town Hall employee to one to 10 years in a state penitentiary for embezzlement.

Jacalyn Ann Villars entered a Kennedy plea in March to the felony of embezzling more than $1,000 from the town. A Kennedy plea does not involve an admission of guilt, but a defendant entering such a plea stands convicted of the charge.

Speculation in the community has put the total figure of funds embezzled as low as $96,000 and as high as $200,000.
