Diana Lynn Fry pled guilty to Theft in the First Degree, a class "C" felony for the taking of more than $10,000 from the City of Muscatine while she was employed as a clerk in the city's finance department.

In connection with the guilty plea FRY admitted taking approximately $15,545 over a three year time period.

"The plea agreement calls for the defendant to make a restitution payment of at least $8,500 at sentencing," said Muscatine County Attorney Alan Ostergren who prosecuted the case. "This will cover the City's deductible for its insurance against employee theft. My goal in this case is to do everything I can to get the taxpayers repaid as quickly as possible," he added. "The plea agreement provides that if she does not have the $8,500 restitution payment on hand at sentencing the Court will be free to impose a prison term of up to ten years," said Ostergren.

Fry will be sentenced April 12, 2013, at 9:15 a.m. This case was investigated by the Muscatine Police Department.
