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.
