Former deputy pleads guilty to theft
PLAQUEMINE - A former Iberville Parish Sheriff's deputy pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges she stole money from the department.
Judge Alvin Batiste sentenced Destiny St. Angelo to three years supervised probation for her guilty plea to theft charges. The judge also ordered she pay $14,631.50 in restitution to the sheriff's office along with other fines and court costs, and be evaluated for gambling addiction.
St. Angelo resigned in December 2013 and faced allegations that she stole criminal fine payments from as far back as 2010.
Sheriff Brent Stassi told News 2 she worked for years in the criminal records division, and they planned to put measures in place to ensure the same thing doesn't happen again.
