Librarian to Lose Her Pension After Embezzling From Library


HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – A former Waterbury library payroll manager will lose her pension.  That’s according to State Attorney General George Jepsen.  Lynette James pleaded guilty to embezzling over $200,000 from the library.  Her pension is valued at about $13,000 per year.  That money will now go toward repaying what she stole.

James worked at the library from 1989 to 2014.  Prosecutors say she took about $100 each day because she thought she was underpaid.  Her salary was $29,000 per year.  James could spend 18 months in jail.  She’ll be sentenced in June.
