Norfolk Woman Pleads Guilty to Stealing From Employer

MADISON – A Norfolk woman will be sentenced next year after pleading guilty to charges related to stealing from her former employer.

Tonya Pearson pleaded guilty to a reduced misdemeanor charge of unauthorized use of a financial transaction device in Madison County District Court on Friday. The charge was reduced from a felony as part of an agreement entered with prosecutors.

Pearson was arrested in September after her previous employer, Allied Tour and Travel, found over 30 unauthorized transactions made on a company credit card totaling over $30,000.

According to court documents, Pearson admitted her involvement in a letter to Allied, and pledged to repay the money.

Pearson faces up to a year in prison when she’s sentenced on January 20th.
