Former bookkeeper at Holy Sepulcher in Butler County waives theft charges to trial

A former secretary and bookkeeper at Holy Sepulcher Catholic School in Middlesex, Butler County, who is accused of stealing more than $315,000 in tuition money and cash, has waived her charges to Butler County Common Pleas Court.

Lynn Tomlinson, 43, of Penn, had been scheduled for a hearing on theft and related charges on June 6. However, court records show that she waived that hearing. Tomlinson, who remains free on $400,000 unsecured bond, could not be reached. Her attorney, Stephen M. Misko of Butler, did not return a phone message Thursday.

State police said Tomlinson last year confessed to the thefts when school officials confronted her. She said she began taking money in 2007, and quit in 2011.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
