A former Tom Green County employee has pleaded guilty in federal court to embezzlement.

Yantis Dean Green, the former manager of the Tom Green County Water Control and Improvement District No. 1 pleaded guilty to an information charging one count of theft concerning programs receiving federal funds.

The 49-year-old San Angelo native faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, and may be ordered to pay restitution.

Green admitted to embezzling nearly $63,000 from the district.

Green was the manager of the district from December 2003 through July 2012, and oversaw the day to day operations, and oversight of two to three field workers.

He was fired in July of 2012, after it was discovered that Green had used the district’s credit cards for personal purchases.

Green disguised the nature of the purchases by making false entries in the district’s financial records, and made payments on those cards from the district’s checking accounts.

The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Lubbock.
