The judge who sentenced former St. Elmo librarian Terri Gillespie acknowledged that he took into account numerous letters of support in deciding on her sentence.
Gillespie, who was charged in January with two counts of felony theft for taking funds from the St. Elmo Library District, was sentenced to 30 days in jail during Friday’s hearing in Fayette County Circuit Court.
She pleaded guilty on Aug. 7 to one count of theft of between $10,000 and $100,000, a Class 1 felony that is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
