From NCT Trustee Paul Buescher
Former Northfield Center-Sagamore Hills Fire District Fiscal Officer, Rosemary Barrett, plead GUILTY today to the charge of theft in office. She made the plea before Judge Alison Breaux. The 4th degree felony charge resulted from the misuse of a Fire District issued credit card.
Barrett was sentenced to 36 months of “Community Control” (Community Service) and will pay restitution amounting to $10,172.12. Details are included in court documents in case number CR-2017-08-3061.
Barrett was originally charged last August by the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, when Northfield Center Township received a suspicious bill from Huntington Bank (formerly First Merit). The Sheriff’s Office was immediately contacted and conducted a subsequent investigation, which immediately implicated Mrs. Barrett. The Summit County Sheriff’s investigation, led by Detective Ann Manuel, is now complete and the case is closed.
