SALT LAKE CITY -- A former Tabiona clerk has pleaded guilty to a federal mail fraud charge stemming from the theft of more than $184,000 from the small Duchense County town.
Angela Betty Curry entered the plea in Salt Lake City's U.S. District Court on Thursday.
The 36-year-old Curry faces a 20-year prison term and a $250,000 fine when sentenced on June 1 by U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups.
In court papers, Curry acknowledged she forged the signatures of the mayor and city council members on 132 checks and then deposited the funds into her own bank account.
Discrepancies in accounting records were discovered when city leaders reviewed the town's account at the bank. Curry had refused to provide them with bank statements.
Curry worked for Tabiona from February 2006 to August 2010.
