BARRE, Vt. (AP) - A former Vermont tax examiner is going to spend 90 days on home confinement after pleading guilty to embezzling nearly $16,000 from the state Department of Taxes.

The state Attorney General’s office says that Chelsea Hoadley entered the plea Friday in Vermont Superior Court in Barre as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.

In addition to home confinement, Hoadley was placed on probation for three years and she must participate in a community justice program within a year.

MyChamplainValley.com reported that her attorney said Hoadley was overcome with financial troubles and made a bad decision. She used the funds to pay online bills and wrote herself checks.

Prosecutors alleged in January that Hoadley used another person’s identity to have state funds deposited in her personal bank account in 2018.
