HART — A 29-year-old Hart woman pleaded guilty Monday, April 11, in 27th Circuit Court to embezzling $1,000-$20,000 from Shopko Hometown store.

Kimberly Ann Nicosia, of 710 E. Main St., faces a 45-day jail sentence in exchange for her guilty plea.

Nicosia, who worked as a customer service associate, testified Monday that she embezzled the money by making “fake returns.”

The maximum penalty for the offense is five years in prison.
