“I just want to apologize to the county for what I’ve done,” Nelson said in court Tuesday, while asking a judge for leniency.
Reimbursement of that money is being pursued through a civil lawsuit filed by the county against Nelson.
“She made very deliberate choices,” Senior Assistant Attorney General James Boffetti said. “She knew the system at the jail was lax and knew that she could do it and not get caught.”
“This defendant needs to understand that does a great deal to destroy the trust in government and public employees. And that conduct needs to be punished,” Boffetti said.
Nelson wanted to plead guilty from the outset of the case, and made no effort to fight the civil lawsuit or lien on her home, according to LaFlamme.
Nelson was ordered to pay $27,000 as a partial restitution payment to the county on Monday.
“You have a very good person in front of you who made a terrible mistake,” said LaFlamme, who told the judge he knew the Nelson family his entire life and considered them personal friends.
