Former Utility Manager In Illinois Pleads Guilty To Embezzling $524K

From the Associated Press on 5/22/13:

BENTON, Illinois — The former manager of Marion's water department pleaded guilty to federal charges she stole more than $500,000 from the southern Illinois city.

U.S. Attorney Stephen R. Wigginton says Linda Heyde pleaded guilty Wednesday in U.S. District Court to three counts of theft and embezzlement of a local government that receives federal funds. She initially pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Heyde managed the water department from 1996 until last year, when she was fired after suspicious transactions were discovered in her department.
