Ex-Alderson town worker sentenced for embezzling

Posted: Updated:

UNION, WV (AP) — A former Alderson employee will spend at least a year in prison for embezzling money from the town.

Media outlets report that Jacalyn Villars received a one-to-10 year sentence from Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Robert Irons.

Villars entered a Kennedy plea in March to embezzling more than $1,000 from the town. Under the Kennedy rule, a defendant doesn't admit guilt.

She was sentenced Monday.

Monroe County prosecutor Justin St. Clair says Villars has repaid some of the money.
