WILBER, Neb. (AP) - A former Saline County Court assistant clerk accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the office has pleaded guilty.

The Lincoln Journal Star (http://bit.ly/1VLSxDx ) reports that 42-year-old Jodi Rezabek pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony theft and attempted forgery. The Nebraska State Auditor’s office says that when confronted with a $15,500 discrepancy in the county court’s financial books, Rezabek admitted that she had taken the money to pay a contractor who did work at her home and that she altered court bank statements to conceal the discrepancy.

An audit also said that Rezabek had drawn a cashier’s check for over $62,000 from the account in May 2015 and then deposited it a month later. She was also accused of taking over $1,000 in cash-on-hand.

Court records say Rezabek has already paid restitution. She faces up to 10 years in prison.
