Former Rockingham jail administrator to admit to theft
She allegedly manipulated the payroll records at the Rockingham County jail, where her husband worked as a corrections officer, overbilling the county thousands of dollars.
The thefts date back to at least July 2012, according to indictments.
Nelson and her husband, Keith, were suspended in May and no longer work for the county.
Prosecutors and Nelson’s lawyer have agreed to let a judge ultimately decide Nelson’s punishment after they make their arguments at an upcoming court hearing, according to court records.
Defense lawyer Gerard LaFlamme asked a judge for a pre-sentence investigation to help craft a potential sentence. He asked the court for a May court date.
“Knowing what I know, she probably needs to go to jail,” Coyle said. “When you’re in a position of public trust and handling the public’s money, you need to go to jail.”
Nelson being allowed to review her husband’s time sheet was part of the problem, he said.
