A 42-year-old Plymouth woman already on probation for theft has pleaded guilty to a charge that she stole from another Mason City employer.

The Mason City Globe Gazette says Julie Fingalsen pleaded guilty on Monday to felony theft. Prosecutors say Fingalsen stole more than $40,000 from a Mason City optometrist since February 2011.

Her sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 28, as is a hearing to examine whether her probation should be revoked.

Court records say that in February 2010, Fingalsen was given five years of probation and a suspended prison sentence of five years. She'd been convicted of stealing about $41,000 from a chiropractor in Mason City.
