A former payroll clerk accused of stealing money from the city pleaded guilty to several charges on Tuesday.
Jacqueline Kincade, who worked for Grove City as a payroll clerk for 20 years, pleaded guilty to charges of theft in office, tampering with records and filing an incomplete or false tax return.
In March, city spokesman Don Walters said that Kincade, 62, was accused of using her position to write herself 26 checks totaling nearly $68,000.
Kincade was accused of delaying city tax payments to the IRS, with the hopes of covering up the missing funds.
Kincade made no statements in court on Tuesday, but the prosecution indicated that they would seek restitution of nearly $68,000 and additional money to cover fines and legal fees.
If she gets the maximum sentence, Kincade could face seven years in prison and more than $20,000 in fines.
