MARTINSVILLE, Ind. A central Indiana township trustee has been removed from office after pleading guilty to charges that she misspent about $270,000 in taxpayer money.

Sandra Norman pleaded guilty Wednesday to felony charges of theft and official misconduct during a Morgan County court hearing. The judge ordered her removal from office as the Ashland Township trustee and scheduled her sentencing hearing for Nov. 25.

Morgan County Prosecutor Steve Sonnega tells WRTV he was glad to see Norman removed from the office heading up the rural township in the western edge of the county.

Norman was charged with stealing the money by writing checks to herself, friends and her boyfriend since she became trustee in early 2011. The Republican became trustee after her mother resigned from the position.
