December 21, 2017

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A Delhi city clerk has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to stealing more than $100,000 from the eastern Iowa city.

U.S. District Court Judge Linda Reade on Wednesday sentenced former Delhi City Clerk Angela Billings, of Anamosa, to 15 months in federal prison and ordered her to pay $133,915 in restitution to Delhi.

Billings had acknowledged stealing more than $100,000 from Delhi by using the city’s credit card for personal expenses and adjusting her own utility bill. The thefts occurred between 2007 and 2015.

Delhi is a city of about 500 people, 25 miles west of Dubuque.
