Anonymous Patron writes "Library thief pleads for leniency, apologizes: Standing to face the judge, with four packed rows of supporters behind her, Regetta Meyers apologized Tuesday for stealing more than $100,000 from the Homer Township Library District.
The district's former executive director was convicted in October of writing checks to herself from library accounts from 1992 to 1999. Prosecutors did not name an exact figure, but library attorneys contend that Meyers embezzled about $320,000."
