CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A northern Iowa woman accused of misappropriating money from the U.S. Postal Service has taken a plea deal.

Mason City television station KIMT reports (http://bit.ly/2ceWTjh ) that DeAnn Lewman has pleaded guilty to one count of false entry. Federal prosecutors in Cedar Rapids dropped 43 other counts in exchange. The offense carries a maximum prison term of 10 years.

Prosecutors say that between May 2014 and January 2015, Lewman took nearly $3,000 in cash and stamps and took nearly $3,100 that was meant to buy Postal Service money orders in December 2014 and January 2015. She was working as postmaster in Nora Springs.
