A September sentencing date has been set for a Missouri woman who admits stealing from a disabled veteran.
Prosecutors say Jones had been appointed fiduciary through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
She pleaded guilty to one felony count of embezzlement by a Veteran’s fiduciary and faces up to five years in federal prison.
Jones will also have to pay restitution of the embezzled funds.
A federal judge has scheduled a September 22 sentencing date in St. Louis.
