A former library fiscal officer in Kinsman pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to taking more than $14,000 from the Kinsman Free Public Library.

Sharon Vankenegan, 47,  pleaded guilty to charges of theft and forgery stemming from an indictment.

Library officials said a routine state audit uncovered several financial discrepancies dating back to 2011.

Vankenegan was fired from the library in September after it was discovered that she forged a check.

She will be sentenced at a later date.

Trumbull County prosecutors have frozen Vankangegan’s state retirement account to recover the stolen money. They also are seeking jail time.
