Former Jackson County court administrator admits embezzlement

Teresa L. York waived indictment and pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of mail fraud. That charge involved a $41,000 check mailed in December 2011 to pay the court’s monthly credit card bill. A portion of that payment was for items that York had purchased for her own personal use. But federal prosecutors said that over a three-year period starting in January 2009, York embezzled nearly $140,000.
