Former Delhi City Clerk Pleads Guilty To Theft of City Funds

A woman who used her position as the city clerk for the City of Delhi to steal city funds pled guilty on June 9, 2017, in federal court in Cedar Rapids.

 

Angela Billings, 42, from Anamosa, Iowa, was convicted of Theft Concerning a Program Receiving Public Funds.

 

In a plea agreement, Billings admitted that she held a position of public trust as the city clerk and that her position of trust contributed significantly to both the commission and concealment of her crime. By unlawfully using the city’s credit card for personal expenses and by either canceling water payments that she owed to the city or causing the city not to submit bills to her for amounts owed, Billings admitted to stealing at least $93,177 between March 2007 and January 2015.

 

Sentencing before United States District Court Judge Linda R. Reade will be set after a presentence report is prepared. Billings remains free on bond previously set. She faces a possible maximum sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment; a fine equal to the greater of twice the gross gain to defendant resulting from the offense, twice the gross loss resulting from the offense, or $250,000; $100 in special assessments; and 3 years of supervised release following any imprisonment.

 

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jacob A. Schunk and was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
