Steuben Co. Worker Admits to Tampering with Records

     STEUBEN CO. (WENY) --  An former employee of the Steuben County Treasurer's Office has admitted she tampered with records.

     Melissa Olin of Avoca pleaded guilty to tampering with public records in the first degree, which is a felony.  Olin was first arrested last July after an investigator discovered Olin was making fake entries with some tax receipt records, to cover payments and steal money.

     Sentencing isn't until March 2015 but she could face up to three years in prison.  Olin will be required to pay back all the money she took from the county.
