Oakdale woman agrees to pay restitution to county retirement fund

Monday, Jan. 13, 2014, 6:42 p.m.
 

A former Allegheny County Retirement Fund employee accused of padding her salary intends to repay the county $11,000, her attorney said.

Barbara Bateman, 42, of Oakdale agreed to pay restitution and enter the county's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition probation program, said Robert Crisanti, her attorney.

She had a court hearing Monday.

Bateman, a payroll clerk with the retirement fund for more than eight years, was fired in January and charged. Prosecutors accused her of giving herself monthly bonuses, increasing her salary and taking an annual bonus for opting out of the county's health insurance coverage even though she was enrolled in it.

Bateman agreed to the probation program because upon completion, her record will be wiped clean, Crisanti said.
