RUSSELLVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A former Russellville city employee has pleaded guilty to theft charges.

The district attorney confirmed Friday that 46-year-old Ladonna Montgomery pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted theft.

As part of her plea deal, Montgomery repaid more than $65,000 to the city. The judge then approved a suspended jail sentence.

The ABI launched an investigation against Montgomery last May, after the city noticed a discrepancy in financial records.
