The longtime Springport clerk is facing felony charges for allegedly using a town computer to boost her own retirement benefits.
Deborah Waldron, 62, was arrested Friday and has been charged with first-degree offering a false instrument for filing, a class E felony. She’s also charged with computer trespass and official misconduct.
Waldron pleaded not guilty and will return to Aurelius Town Court June 28.
The alleged crime was found during a review conducted by the state’s comptroller’s office of Springport’s monthly retirement reports. State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli oversees the pension system for state and local government employees.
