Nancy Cline

Nancy Leeann Cline was sentenced Monday in state District Court in Havre to eight years with the state Department of Corrections with all but 18 months suspended for theft from an employer and theft from a person for whom she was giving care.

Cline pleaded guilty in October 2017 to theft by common scheme for from AT&T while she was working for the company. She attempted to withdraw from the plea agreement when the Hill County Attorney's Office said it would withdraw from its recommendation of a suspended sentence because she was charged with felony exploitation of an incapacitated person while awaiting sentencing.

Judge Dan Boucher denied Cline's motion to withdraw her guilty plea.

She pleaded guilty to the second charge in August.

Monday, Boucher imposed eight-year sentences with all but a year-and-a-half suspended on each charge, to run at the same time, and ordered Cline to pay restitution.

Cline was sentenced in 2014 to a partially suspended sentence for violating conditions of her release on 2008 offenses of forgery and theft by embezzlement.
