Former Anderson clerk gets probation for theft

FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- A former city clerk in the community of Anderson will serve two years of probation after stealing more than $10,000.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports 67-year-old Darla J. Coghill pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree misdemeanor theft.
Terms of the plea deal include her repaying $10,822 to the Park Highway community.
If she violates probation, she will have to serve up to six months in jail.
She was the city clerk from March 2008 to January 2012. Coghill's successor as city clerk reported the suspected embezzlement to Alaska State Troopers.
Officials say she was overpaid more than $2,000 in time off. Prosecutors said she also racked up nearly $9,000 on her city-issued credit card on personal expenses, like bills, denture adhesives and a plane ticket for her son.
