A woman who was charged with theft in the 1st degree after she allegedly misappropriated property in excess of $10,000 while she worked for Goodhue-Nolte in Carlisle between 2004 and 2011 has submitted a guilty plea.
Linette Thoman, 45, of Carlisle, originally pleaded not guilty to the charge in February.
The theft charge is a Class “C” Felony, which has a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $1,000 to $10,000 fine.
According to court documents, an investigation concerning allegations of theft began in January 2011 but it took the Warren County Sheriff’s office approximately two years to file charges.
“Following interviews, voluminous records and computer hard drives were collected by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office,” according to the documents. “It took the Sheriff’s Office approximately two years to review the records, have a forensic accounting review of said records and a computer expert to review the same.”
According to court documents, the realty company reported $85,840 in missing or unaccounted for money between 2004 and 2011.
A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for June 23 at 9 a.m. in the Warren County Courthouse.
