A former Girl Scout leader has plead guilty to felony theft charges after she admitted stealing $6,000 from a cookie fundraiser.
Carmen Wysong, 27, was in Mesa County Court Wednesday morning.
Wysong was accused of stealing $6,000 from the Girl Scouts so she could make a deposit on a place to live, pay for utilities, food and payments on a vehicle, according to police.
The money from cookie sales was supposed to be deposited into a bank account Wysong was responsible for setting up, but the account was never actually opened.
Wysong plead guilty to a class 4 felony of theft on Wednesday and she faces sentencing on May, 20th at 8:00 a.m.
Under the terms of her plea agreement, she'll have to spend time in community corrections and faces probation.
Wysong also agreed to pay $4,800 in restitution to the Girl Scout Troop she stole from.
