Embezzling former tax collector Karen Guillet's sentencing will be held on Nov. 7 at Milford Superior Court, the court announced Wednesday.
Guillet, 62, who has pleaded guilty to charges stemmimg from her theft of taxpayer dollars, was supposed to be sentenced on Monday, Oct. 28. However the state Judicial Branch was closed due to Hurricane Sandy.
Guillet has pleaded guilty to first-degree larceny, a Class B felony, for stealing $242,903 from the town, although some estimates suggest she stole at least $670,000. She has entered into a plea bargain agreement that calls for 12 years in prison, suspended after she serves five. It also states that she must pay back that amount.
She was arrested in late 2011; according to the state police arrest warrant, she stole money from the town while serving as tax collector to pay for purchases at high-end retail stores, spa treatments and a dog walker, among other things.
