AUGUSTA (AP) -The former finance administrator of Gardiner has pleaded guilty to stealing $195,000 from the city’s coffers over a six-year period.

Fifty-five-year-old Patricia Coty pleaded guilty Wednesday in Kennebec County Superior Court.

A sentencing recommendation agreed to by prosecutors and Coty’s attorney would cap her jail time at nine month.

Coty worked for the city for 13 years before her arrest in June. She has paid $100,000 in partial restitution to the city.
