Charleroi woman sentenced in cafeteria theft

Friday, Aug. 30, 2013, 3:33 p.m.
 

An ex-cafeteria worker was sentenced Thursday to six months under house arrest and three years on probation for taking nearly $94,000 from her employer to feed a gambling habit in 2010.

Stacy Lee Shipley, 50, of Charleroi, pleaded guilty this week to a theft charge, according to online court records.

Shipley took money that Charleroi Area School District students paid for daily meals to gamble at The Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington County, investigators said. She allegedly shared the money and gambling with ex-coworker Shelia Ann Cook, 49, who also is charged in the case.

Shipley paid $46,000 towards her $53,000 in restitution on Thursday, according to online court records.

Cook is scheduled for trial next month.
