June Shepardson, a former town and village justice in Moravia, Cayuga County, pled guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny, a class E felony, in Cayuga County Court on Thursday.

The Citizen reports Shepardson, 62, admitted to embezzling over $6,000 in court funds, leading to her resignation on August 31 after a state investigation uncovered the missing money.


As part of her plea agreement, Shepardson has already paid more than $6,000 in restitution, including $6,173 to the Moravia town court and $153 to the village of Moravia.

Her sentencing, scheduled for March 14, is expected to include five years of felony probation.
