CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A former Natrona County District Attorney legal assistant has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor theft charge for stealing money from her co-worker’s purse.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1LoARu1) Melanie Dunn received a suspended 90-day sentence and won’t spend time in jail.

She’s been ordered to pay District Attorney’s office Victim Witness Unit director Nancy Johnson $400 in restitution as well as a $300 fine.

Johnson said in a witness impact statement that she was friends with Dunn and now has trouble trusting co-workers.

Court documents say the thefts occurred over the course of several months. A Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation agent installed a motion-activated camera that filmed one of the thefts.
