La Salle County Auditor charges concern overtime pay

The 11 charges filed Tuesday against La Salle County Auditor Jody Wilkinson concern overtime pay for her deputy auditors.

Wilkinson, 53, of Northville Township, is charged with one count of misapplying funds, two counts of theft and eight counts of official misconduct. She posted bond at the county jail Tuesday night.

Deputy Auditors Tori Artman, 44, and Pamela Wright, 54, were charged Sept. 25 with accepting $1,358.88 and $1,672.86 respectively in unearned overtime between October 2016 and August 2017.

Wilkinson is charged with altering Artman and Wright's time sheets to falsely reflect they earned the overtime pay, then forwarding the time sheets to the county's payroll office. Wilkinson's first court hearing is Thursday, Nov. 29, before Chief Judge H. Chris Ryan Jr.

The three women have been banned from the auditor's office since Oct. 2.
