PORT ARTHUR, Texas (AP) - A former city of Port Arthur employee could spend up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty in a fraud case.

The Beaumont Enterprise (https://bit.ly/1HujlgD ) reports 40-year-old Shauwn Williams pleaded guilty to two counts of felony theft by a public servant Monday.

Williams admitted that she submitted fake lawn care invoices for about $7,400 in services that never took place in 2012. Her sentence hearing is scheduled for April 20.

District Attorney Bob Wortham said Williams paid the restitution in full Monday before pleading guilty.

The district attorney’s office also is investigating a former Port Arthur municipal court clerk who is suspected of embezzling thousands of dollars and tampering with court documents.
