Kan. town’s housing director admits theft
The U.S. Attorney’s office says 53-year-old Debra L. Savage, of Linn, pleaded guilty Friday to one count of theft from a federal program.
Savage was the executive director of the housing authority in Linn, a north-central Kansas town of about 400 people in Washington County. In her plea, she admitted using a housing authority credit card for personal expenses of nearly $7,700 between December 2009 and December 2012.
Savage faces maximum penalties of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 at her sentencing, scheduled for April 4.
