Whiting woman sentenced in theft of fire dept. funds

(KNZA)--A Whiting woman convicted of the theft of funds from the Whiting Fire Department has been ordered to serve the month of December in jail as a condition of her probation.

Jodi Folk was sentenced Friday in Jackson County District Court on a charge of misdemeanor theft.

According to court documents, she was given a suspended one year jail sentence and placed on probation for period of 12 months.

Folk pleaded no contest in April to the theft charge as part of a plea deal.

In exchange for the plea, a charge of criminal use of a financial card was dismissed.

Folk had originally been charged with a felony count of misuse of public funds.

The charges were filed last September following an investigation by the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.

A restitution review hearing has been scheduled for June 28th.
