CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Mills woman has acknowledged embezzling thousands of dollars from the Wyoming Fiddlers’ Association.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/lBuQo7 ) Casey Whiteman pleaded guilty Thursday to one felony count of taking more than $10,000 from the group, for which she worked as treasurer for nearly a year. She was ordered to pay $10,400 in restitution, which she paid in December.

Prosecutors say Whiteman was hired as treasurer in September 2014 and started stealing money about a month later, after she was granted authorization to sign checks for the association.

Investigators say she told them she used the stolen money to pay bills, including rent, for child care, groceries and medical care.
