A former McDonald's restaurant manager in Devils Lake has been sentenced to five years of supervised probation after pleading guilty this week in Ramsey County District Court in connection with the theft of more than $20,000 from the restaurant.

Amber Aldinger-Cross, 31, Jamestown, N.D., entered guilty pleas Tuesday to Class B felony theft of property, Class C felony possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, according to Ramsey County State's Attorney Lonnie Olson.

During one week in September, he said, she took a total of $20,158 from restaurant receipts that were supposed to be deposited in the bank. The thefts, ranging from about $2,500 to as much as $5,000, came from seven separate deposits.

Aldinger-Cross told the court she took the money to help with family medical bills, according to Olson, who said he argued for a sentence that included six months in jail, with five years of supervised probation.

However, Northeast Judicial District Judge Donovan Foughty limited the sentence to supervised probation.
