CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio (AP) — A former northeast Ohio library executive won't go to prison but will have to pay back nearly $370,000 she embezzled in library fees and overdue book fines.
The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/16NLPV9 ) reports that 55-year-old Theresa M. Karm pleaded guilty to one felony count of aggravated theft and was sentenced Wednesday.
A judge gave the former deputy fiscal officer of the Cuyahoga Falls Library a three-year suspended prison sentence, five years of probation and ordered her to pay $369,848 in restitution.
The case came to light in March when Karm was fired. Police said a three-month investigation uncovered a lengthy series of financial discrepancies.
Karm is accused of stealing the money in small amounts, beginning in 2007, for such things as printer fees and overdue book fines.
