A former employee who stole more than $30,000 from Neptune Aviation will be sentenced in November after pleading guilty to a felony embezzlement charge as part of an agreement with prosecutors.
Tera Christine Pyron, 42, entered the plea during her arraignment Tuesday before District Court Judge Karen Townsend.
Pyron was charged in August with theft by embezzlement after it was discovered she used a company credit card for personal purchases, including a television, scuba gear, clothing and nail polish, according to a court affidavit. Pyron altered receipts for the purchases before submitting them for reimbursement.
She will be sentenced on Nov. 15. Senior Deputy County Attorney Karla Painter said her plea agreement recommends a six-year deferred sentence, with a stipulation that Pyron pay more than $30,000 in restitution.
