Former village clerk takes plea deal in theft case

A former village clerk in south-central Nebraska has taken a plea deal in her theft case.
Online court records say 31-year-old Kelly Jackson pleaded no contest Monday to misdemeanor theft. Prosecutors had lowered the charge from a felony in exchange for her plea. Jackson's sentencing is set for Feb. 13.

Court documents say an audit by the Nebraska state auditor's office alleges that Jackson paid herself $15,830 more than her monthly approved income of $400.

Several former and current board members told investigators that a village official signed blank checks so Jackson could pay city bills. Officials say that Jackson instead wrote checks to herself.
