New Jersey's attorney general says a former head cashier for the Robert Wood Johnson University Medical Group has pleaded guilty to embezzlement.
Dewyna Brown pleaded guilty on Friday state Superior Court in Middlesex County to a charge of theft by unlawful taking.
Brown admitted she stole approximately $42,000 while employed by the medical group and the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
Prosecutors say Brown was responsible for handling money received as co-payments from patients and keeping track of it on spreadsheets.
Brown admitted that between 2011 until her suspension in January 2013, she took envelopes containing cash and falsified log sheets to conceal the thefts.
She's been ordered to pay $42,000 in restitution and is barred from future public employment.
Her sentencing is scheduled for May 19.
