A former finance manager for Sun City Huntley by Del Webb pleaded guilty to stealing more than $30,000 from the business, according to a news release from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Jennifer F. Lupo, 41, formerly of Lake in the Hills, pleaded guilty to theft and awaits sentencing.
Kane County Circuit Judge Donald M. Tegeler Jr. accepted the plea, according to the state’s attorney’s office. Lupo could face probation or between three to seven years in prison.
Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Julie Gerding said during the hearing that between January 2015 and October 2015, when Lupo worked as the finance manager for Sun City Huntley by Del Webb, she charged $29,763.47 worth of personal items and services to a company credit card, as well as to the company credit cards of two co-workers, according to the state’s attorney’s office.
Lupo previously was convicted of theft against TLS Veterans in McHenry.
Lupo pleaded guilty to an amended misdemeanor theft charge in October 2016 after facing several felony charges in 2014 of identity theft, forgery and theft by deception from TLS Veterans, which is based in McHenry.
Lupo used Transitional Living Services credit cards without authorization, forged a check and altered her payroll to obtain goods, money and credit by deception, according to the indictment.
Lupo was sentenced to two years of probation and 180 days in jail, which was stayed pending her compliance. She also was ordered to pay $16,513.91 in restitution to TLS Veterans in McHenry, according to court documents.
Lupo is free on a signature bond. She will next appear in court for sentencing at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 22, in Courtroom 311 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
