CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- The former Coordinator of the Guernsey County Child Advocacy Center was sentenced on Monday in Guernsey County Common Pleas Court.
Forty-three-year old Melissa Keylor of Cambridge was to serve two consecutive twelve month sentences; one for theft in office, the other for grand theft. Those terms were suspended and she will instead serve three years of community control, six months of which will be spent in the Guernsey County Jail.
Keylor entered no contest pleas and was found guilty last month to charges stemming from theft at both the Child Advocacy Center and Guernsey County Children Services, where she served also as an Intake Supervisor.
Assistant Prosecutor Kent Biegler told AVC News that, mostly through a Order of Restitution from her retirement account, Keylor has repaid "every penny stolen."
That amounts to nearly $30,000 to the Child Advocacy Center and just over $1,700 to Children Services.
