WELLSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Wellsburg woman has pleaded guilty to embezzling from a school service workers association.

Media outlets report that the felony charge will be reduced to misdemeanor petit larceny if 61-year-old Debra Baker completes a mental health court counseling program and doesn’t commit any other crimes.

Baker pleaded guilty Monday in Brooke County Circuit Court. Judge Ronald Wilson told Baker that she faces one to 10 years in prison if she doesn’t complete the counseling. If she completes the program, Wilson will rule that she has served her sentence.

Baker was accused of embezzling about $13,000 from the U.S. School Service Employees Association of West Virginia, which she served as a secretary.
