APPLETON - A former town of Dale official has been convicted of using a municipal credit card for personal use.
Marcia Kelly, the former clerk, pleaded no contest Friday in Outagamie County circuit court to six counts of misconduct in office and two counts of theft. Another 27 similar counts were dismissed as part of the plea deal, according to online court records.
According to the criminal complaint, Kelly spent about $50,000. She used cards from the Wolf River Community Bank and Home Depot. She also opened two Sam's Club accounts for the town, but listed herself as the only authorized user. The complaint shows Kelly used the cards for purchases at the Ho Chunk Casino in Baraboo, hotels in both Wisconsin and Illinois, phone bills, groceries, and gift cards. She allegedly used town funds to pay them off.
A restitution hearing is scheduled for July 9, court records indicate.
The town's former treasurer, Erica Siewert, was sentenced to a year on probation for similar charges.
