Acting Erie County District Attorney Michael J. Flaherty, Jr. announces that 48-year-old Rhonda Greco, of Lancaster, has pleaded guilty to one count of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree and ten counts of Falsifying Business Records in the First Degree before State Supreme Court Justice Penny Wolfgang.

The plea stems from Greco’s employment in the Accounts Payable Department at the Lancaster Central School District from 2009 through September 2015.

While working there, she used the Lancaster Central School District checking account to pay her personal NYSEG, National Fuel and Verizon Wireless bills a total of ten times from October of 2014 through September 2015.  She resigned from her position when confronted about the missing money.

Greco must make full restitution for the loss of taxpayer dollars which totals $3,461.71.

Greco faces a maximum of up to 7 years in prison when she is sentenced by Justice Wolfgang on August 1, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.

Assistant District Attorney Brian P. Dassero prosecuted the case.
