A Randolph New Jersey woman recently admitted to stealing $75K from a local dentist.
The 46-year-old suspect allegedly stole the money from her employer over a three-year period.
The suspect received a great deal of sympathy, as well as financial support, after her family’s home on South Road in Randolph NJ burned down earlier this year. In fact, the suspect received more than $22,000 through a GoFundMe campaign after the home was destroyed.
Law enforcement first learned about the alleged theft several months ago and began an investigation. Authorities learned that the suspect used the victim’s credit cards to buy expensive items.
The suspect was eventually placed under arrest and charged with theft by unlawful taking.
She later appeared in Morris County Superior Court in Morristown NJ and pleaded guilty to the theft charges.
Now the suspect will face severe penalties when she returns to Morris County Superior Court in January for sentencing. The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office is expected to recommend that the suspect be sentenced to probation for a period of five years.
Additionally, the suspect has already agreed to repay the $75,000 she stole from the dentist.
