Woman pleads guilty to theft


An Upper Sandusky woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges in connection to theft from her father-in-law and his estate.

Brittney T. Scott, 46, pleaded guilty to two counts of forgery, one third-degree felony and one fifth-degree felony; and identity fraud against an elderly person, theft from an elderly person and two counts of complicity to theft from an elderly person, all fourth-degree felonies.

A charge of complicity to theft, a fifth-degree felony, was dismissed.

The case was referred for a pre-sentence investigation, and her attorney and Seneca County Prosecutor’s Office are to argue for an appropriate sentence at a hearing March 27.

Scott’s husband, Tod W. Scott, 48, also was charged.

He was charged with two counts of tampering with records and one count of misuse of credit cards, all third-degree felonies; grand theft, two counts of theft from an elderly person and two counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle, all fourth-degree felonies; and theft, a fifth-degree felony.
