EAGLE RIVER - Last year's Eagle River "woman of the year" will soon be considered a convicted felon.

Monday, Michelle Albaugh pled no contest to a felony for stealing $16,000 from the Eagle River Jaycees.

Albaugh use to be the treasurer for the civic organization. She told an investigator she used the club's debit card for things like meals at restaurants, gas, entertainment, and even paying her father's bills. She also admitted to Eagle River Police that she withdrew more than $5,000 from ATMs for her own use.

The judge dismissed another felony for identity theft, but it may be considered when the judge decides how much she'll need to pay in restitution.

Albaugh will be sentenced in September.
