    Thursday afternoon Kayla Tillery, who allegedly forged checks and stole more than $25,000 from the Newton Area Chamber of Commerce Chamber Buck$ program, agreed to a plea bargain in Harvey County District Court.
    Tillery pleaded no contest to four felony charges — out of a total of 14 in the complaint — and will face the nearly the maximum sentence available as a result.
    Tillery pleaded no contest to one count of forgery, one count of aggravated theft, one cough of felony theft and one count of computer fraud. She faces a maximum sentence of 45 months of probation — one month less the maximum sentence had the case gone through trial ending in a conviction — and she will be forced to pay restitution on all 14 counts filed in the complaint.
