BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A former Vermont state worker has pleaded guilty to charges that she embezzled more than $50,000 while working as a claims examiner and that she used some of the money to buy a boat, a vehicle, guitar, firearms, and other items.

Lisa Peduzzi, of Plainfield appeared in court in Burlington on Tuesday in a plea deal that called for several embezzlement-related charges to be dropped.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/1Lh0Job) Assistant Attorney General David Tartter is seeking a two-year sentence for the 52-year-old Peduzzi.

Peduzzi is scheduled to be sentenced on March 25 in Vermont Superior Court in Barre.

Authorities alleged Peduzzi created false claims against the state then used the payments for her own purposes.
