A woman charged with theft and forgery pled guilty to her crimes in criminal court on Monday.

Tracy Lynn Tackett- Wilson, 23, of LaFollette will spend the next six-years on unsupervised probation. She was also ordered to pay court costs and a $1,000 fine to the Economic Crime Fund.

Wilson was arrested on Feb. 2.  She had been accused of siphoning funds from a local construction company while employed as its bookkeeper.

“Over $31,000 worth of company money was determined missing from the account,” said Campbell County Sheriff Gary Perkins. 

Wilson was charged with forgery, theft of property under $500, theft of property $500 to $999, theft of property $1,000 to $9,999, theft of property $10,000 to $59,000 and fraudulent use of a credit card, according to court records.

On Monday, Wilson pled guilty to one count of theft over $10,000.  Along with probation, she may also have a judicial diversion pending a Tennessee Bureau of Investigation background check.

Wilson has already paid $35,000 in restitution to the company that she stole from, according to court records.
