Guilty plea for former Naval Academy cashier in $120K theft

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A former cashier at a store at the U.S. Naval Academy has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $120,000.

Mary Catherine Lewis, 43, of Virginia Beach, Va., pleaded guilty on Friday in federal court to theft of government property.

The charges arose from a scheme to steal money from the Midshipman Store in Annapolis.

Federal prosecutors say Lewis used a series of fraudulent refund transactions to steal money from the store. Lewis would credit money from a refund that did not in fact take place.

She faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. She has been ordered to pay $125,000 in restitution.
