Sidney, NE (AP) - A Sidney woman accused of stealing from the Sidney Federation Wrestling Club has been given 18 months of probation.
Sidney radio station KSID says Amanda Sykora was sentenced on Monday. She'd made a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to attempted theft. Prosecutors had lowered the charge and dismissed another in exchange for Sykora's plea.
Authorities say the 30-year-old Sykora wrote and cashed or deposited 13 unauthorized checks totaling more than $4,500 when she was treasurer of the wrestling club. Prosecutors say she's already paid $4,000 in restitution.
