Clerk at La Habra community center convicted of stealing more than $70,000

A Brea woman was convicted Tuesday of stealing more than $70,000 from the La Habra community center while she was working there as a clerk, authorities said.

Kimberly Lynn Duncan, 24, pleaded guilty to one felony count each of misappropriation of public funds, forgery and second-degree commercial burglary, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

Prosecutors said Duncan stole $25,600 cash between late March and early September 2009 while she was working as a clerk at the center. In addition, she was accused of failing to deposit nearly $45,000 in checks and credit card receipts, which have yet to be recovered, prosecutors said.

The community center discovered the missing money after a resident complained that a check was not cashed.

Duncan is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 9 at the Santa Ana courthouse. She could receive up to five years and four months in state prison, the district attorney's office said.

Why no photo? We need to know if this is a black or white person, after all - they are both bad races.

What could she have done with the checks and credit card receipts?

O we cant comment on anything that has to do with a non white person huh? This paper makes me sick with how bad you guys are so racist.

I want to see her pic to see if she's hot or not! Only 24? Nice i bet she's smokin!
