A former Hamburg village employee who confessed to pocketing thousands of dollars learned her fate.
A judge sentenced Joanne Erickson to three months of jail on weekends. She pleaded guilty to several charges, including grand larceny.
Erickson was a recreation attendant for the Village of Hamburg. Prosecutors say she stole more than $150,000.
That money was meant for an afterschool program, a children’s summer program and recreational hall rental fees.
The thefts date back to 2011, and Erickson has paid full restitution.
