FORT SCOTT, Kan. (AP) - A former payroll clerk for a southeast Kansas county will be sentenced in November for stealing nearly $24,000 in public funds.

The Fort Scott Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/10jAsCT ) 29-year-old Angela Timi faces up to 29 months behind bars at her sentencing Nov. 10 in Bourbon County District Court. She must also pay full restitution.

Timi worked in the county clerk’s office from August 2011 until she was fired in January 2013, when officials announced an employee was being investigated for theft.

Timi initially faced 59 charges. Most were dismissed last month when Timi pleaded guilty to misusing public funds and two counts of criminal use of a county credit card.

Agents from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation found numerous instances of a county credit card being used for Timi’s personal expenses.
