Lisa Ayers, former treasurer of the Mine Hill Fire Department in Morris County, pleaded guilty today to embezzling approximately $330,000 over a period of six years.

The 40-year-old admitted writing unauthorized checks and making unauthorized ATM withdrawals from the fire department’s checking account for her personal use.

“Ms. Ayers was entrusted with handling the finances of the Mine Hill Fire Department, an agency dedicated to protecting and serving local residents. But rather than conducting herself in a spirit of public service, like the firefighters who volunteer for the department, she corruptly chose to serve herself,” said Acting Attorney General John Hoffman. “This level of theft demands a substantial prison term.”

The state will recommend that Ayers, charged in February, be sentenced to five years in prison. She will also be permanently barred from public employment in New Jersey, and must pay $228,631 in restitution.

Sentencing is scheduled for January.
