The former Cayuga clerk-treasurer has been sentenced to five years of probation to resolve a federal public corruption case.

Sami Dillon, 39, pleaded guilty last week to theft and was ordered to pay restitution of $52,812.70 to the Town of Cayuga in Vermillion County.

Dillon was indicted in October 2018 following an investigation of Indiana corruption cases by state and federal authorities.

U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler announced the large-scale initiative against 15 individuals working in public service and governmental positions.

Dillon allegedly failed to deposit payments for utility services into town accounts.

Dillon had faces up to five years in federal prison if convicted at trial.

As part of her guilty plea, she was also ordered to perform 200 hours of community service.
