PARIS – A former Waterford deputy town clerk pleaded not guilty in Oxford County Superior Court on Friday to embezzling about $150,000 from town coffers.

Jennifer Morin, 35, of Norway Road in Waterford was indicted on one count of theft last month. The charge is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Morin is accused of taking the money from the town between 2002 and 2008. She served as the deputy town clerk for 10 years before resigning on Feb. 3, one day before the start of an investigation by the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office.

Defense lawyer Maurice Porter said Morin is now working from home selling items on eBay. There are volumes of information on the case, Porter said, and he requested 45 days to file motions in the case. The request was granted by Justice Robert Crowley.
