Former daycare employee pleads guilty to theft

MIDDLEBURG – A former office employee at Children’s Discovery Center in Selinsgrove has pleaded guilty to stealing $34,000 from the daycare. 41-year-old Pamela Crites of Milton pled guilty to felony theft on Tuesday in Snyder County Court.

 

The Daily Item reports Crites could reduce the jail sentence she faces if she repays at least half of the $34,000 she stole. Crites was arrested in August after it was learned she had been stealing from the daycare for two years. Crites is accused of pocketing cash payments made to the center. She faces a minimum of three to 12 months in county prison and a maximum two years in state prison, but under a plea deal, if she pays back half of the money, her prison sentence will be reduced.
