Former Alabama Department of Human Resources clerk Elanda Stallworth has pleaded guilty to felony ethics and second-degree theft charges.
The 57-year-old woman had worked in the Prichard food stamp office and was accused of stealing up to $2,500 in food stamp benefits or money.
In a statement, Attorney General Troy King said Stallworth pleaded guilty Monday in Mobile County Circuit Court. She will be sentenced later.
The ethics violation is a felony that could bring up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $30,000. Second-degree theft is a felony punishable by up to 10 years and a fine of up to $15,000.
