Clerk for state admits theft


February 28, 2007

A 42-year-old Baltimore woman pleaded guilty yesterday to stealing $6,300 from the state Department of Budget and Management's Central Collection Unit, the attorney general's office announced.

Baltimore Circuit Judge Martin P. Welch gave Kathy J. Robinson of East Belvedere Avenue a suspended three-year sentence as well as ordering full restitution and 80 hours of community sentence.

According to the attorney general's office, Robinson was one of two clerks responsible for counting cash deposits at the unit, which collects all debts to state agencies, except for child support and taxes. When investigators confronted Robinson, she admitted taking money three times from the deposits before they were taken to the bank.
