Former public defender makes plea deal on her theft charge

FILLMORE COUNTY- A former York County public defender accused of stealing from two private clients has reached a plea deal. A Fillmore County judge last week set a Jan. 9 hearing for 60-year-old Nancy Waldron. The records don’t provide details about Waldron’s agreement with prosecutors. She’s already pleaded not guilty to felony theft. Questions were raised in nearby Fillmore County about checks Waldron had written to herself on a bank account that belonged to two sisters living in nursing homes, the court records say. Authorities have said she fraudulently billed the two clients and paid herself nearly $187,000 since 2012.
