(St. George-AP) -- A woman accused of stealing more than 14 thousand dollars from a St. George charity run by her father has pleaded guilty to reduced charges.
Twenty-five-year-old Leah Colleen Johnson pleaded guilty last week to one count of theft by deception, a second-degree felony, and three counts of forgery.
Johnson was accused of stealing more than 14 thousand dollars from Dixie Care and Share in St. George.
Johnson had a previous record of credit card fraud before joining Dixie Care and Share. She is the daughter of its director, Ralph Flanagan.
The woman had responsibility over cash disbursements and allegedly wrote checks and forging the two signatures required on each check.
