The former treasurer of a central Indiana Humane Society chapter has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $65,000 from the organization.

Fifty-nine-year-old Sherri L. Sullivan of Anderson pleaded guilty today in Madison Superior Court to three counts of forgery and four counts of theft.

Board members for the Madison County Humane Society contacted police in 2007 after they became suspicious of cash shortfalls.

Investigators say Sullivan used the group’s credit card to buy makeup, jewelry and merchandise from a television shopping network and also wrote checks to herself on the chapter account.

Board members said Sullivan told them she was in financial trouble and had to borrow the money.

Sullivan faces two to eight years in prison on the most-serious charge. Her sentencing was set for June 8.
