Sidney woman gets probation for theft


SIDNEY (AP) — A Sidney woman accused of stealing from the Sidney Federation Wrestling Club has been given 18 months of probation.

Amanda Sykora was sentenced on Monday. She’d made a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to attempted theft. Prosecutors had lowered the charge and dismissed another in exchange for Sykora’s plea.

Authorities say the 30-year-old Sykora wrote and cashed or deposited 13 unauthorized checks totaling more than $4,500 when she was treasurer of the wrestling club. Prosecutors say she’s already paid $4,000 in restitution.
