Citing medical issues, Daniels said she has not had time to review the personal records, which she has had for about three weeks, with the evidence prepared by a forensic detective from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
Assistant Butler County Prosecutor Gloria Sigman said Davis and her attorney have had all the discovery in the case, including the association’s records since August.
“Just having withdrawn money from a home IRA does not equate to deposits back to the organization,” Pater said.
But Pater also said, if Davis can prove to the probation department that the money had been paid back, she would get credit.
Davis said before sentencing, “I realize now I should not have done it …. But I am sorry for what I have done.”
Pater noted Davis’ family income is estimated at $55,000 to $60,000 annually and ordered her to pay $1,600 a month in restitution, which is what she receives from Social Security. He added if she does not pay restitution, she will go to jail for three years.
The Hamilton office suddenly closed April 13 and reopened in May with a new deputy registrar and staff of employees at Hamilton Crossing plaza.
Davis resigned the day the office closed. She had been a deputy registrar since October 1992.
