A Wichita woman who worked as a civilian at McConnell Air Force Base has admitted embezzling more than $54,000 in public funds.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says 44-year-old Deidra Sanders pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of theft of government money.
Sanders worked at the Wichita installation as a deputy dispersing officer for the Air Force. She admitted stealing from the Defense Finance and Accounting Service Fund between March 2013 and April of this year.
Sanders faces up to five years in federal prison at her sentencing, scheduled for Jan. 6.
