NY library worker sentenced for stealing $160,000 in overdue book fines

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A New York library worker who admitted stealing more than $160,000 in overdue book fines and other revenue has been sentenced to six months in jail.

The Westchester district attorney's office says Yonkers resident Margo Reed will have to pay back the full amount and spend 4 1/2 years on probation.

Reed pleaded guilty in February to grand larceny and filing a false tax return.

Prosecutors say she stole the money between 2004 and 2010, when she worked in the business office of the Yonkers Public Library, just north of New York City. They say she collected the revenue from three library branches and then altered paperwork to show less had been collected and pocketed the difference.

They say she didn't report the stolen money on her state tax returns.
