A Dexter woman pleads guilty to taking almost 500-thousand-dollars from her employer. 48-year-old Kathy Ellsworth entered the plea late last week to forging 485-thousand-dollars in checks between December 2009 and November 2011. Ellsworth was a bookkeeper for the victim, when she forged her husband’s signature on the checks to deposit them into her own bank account. Her husband was not aware of her actions. The check amounts ranged from 13 to 98-hundred-dollars each. She was originally charged with 66 felonies of forgery and stealing. Ellsworth will be sentenced July 18th.
