Woman sentenced to prison for theft

Woman sentenced to prison for theft

URBANA — An Urbana woman who admitted stealing from her employer has been sentenced to two years in prison and ordered to pay restitution.

Kylie Mcnew, 39, whose last local address was on South Vine Street, pleaded guilty to felony theft for stealing money from the Urbana -based Delivery 4 U between Jan. 25 and May 1, 2012.

Assistant State's Attorney Scott Bennett said Mcnew worked as a dispatcher for the food delivery service. Its owner noticed several "large credits" on Mcnew's own account and that of her mother and boyfriend, he said. An investigation revealed Mcnew was taking payments from customers and applying the money to those other accounts.

She was ordered to pay restitution of $1,920.70. A separate case of theft was dismissed in return for her plea.

Mcnew will serve the sentence at the same time she serves a sentence she's serving a three-year sentence she received last fall from Vermilion County for possession of a controlled substance.
