Prevett changes plea to guilty
Terri Ann Prevett pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree theft relating to charges she stole from the Fairfield Professional Clinic while acting as its office manager.
Prevett, 57, of Stockport, originally pleaded not guilty in October to the charge she stole from the clinic.
She was charged with stealing more than $120,000 from the clinic from December 2007 to July of this year.
According to the affidavit of Fairfield police officer Colin Smith written on Sept. 12, Prevett became office manager of the Fairfield Professional Clinic in 2007. From Dec. 1, 2007, until July 2013, $121,049 was stolen from the company through bank deposits.
Smith wrote in his affidavit that on numerous occasions, Prevett re-wrote the bank deposit slips to cover up for the theft. He wrote that Prevett gave her daughter a 50-cent per hour raise 1.5 to two years ago without her daughter’s knowledge.
First-degree theft is a Class C Felony. Prevett still has 30 days to change her mind and appeal the guilty plea. Her sentencing is March 25.
