Former Crofton Clerk Fined for Misdemeanor Theft

CENTER – The former clerk of the City of Crofton, who admitted in a letter to a local newspaper her role in stealing from the city, has been fined for misdemeanor theft.

Nancy Foxhoven was sentenced to a $500 fine and no jail time or probation by Knox County Court Judge Donna Taylor last week. Court records show that a criminal complaint against Foxhoven was filed on Thursday. That same day, Foxhoven entered into a plea agreement, entered an “admit” plea to the misdemeanor charge, and was sentenced. Court records indicate she also paid the fine in full on Thursday, effectively closing the case.

Foxhoven retired suddenly in 2015. She later admitted in a letter written to the Crofton Journal newspaper that she had misappropriated city funds, but did not say how much.

The plea agreement filed in Knox County Court stated that restitution had already been paid, but did not specify an amount.
