Woman Pleads Guilty to Embezzling from Homeowners Association

Posted: Updated:

A woman accused of embezzling thousands of dollars from a homeowners association in Albemarle County went back to court.

Investigators charged Patricia Cuthbert with one count of felony embezzlement in August. Wednesday afternoon, Cuthbert admitted that she took money from the Hollymead Citizens Association, pleading guilty to felony embezzlement in Albemarle Circuit Court.

Cuthbert is a former treasurer for Hollymead's homeowners association. She was arrested and charged in August with embezzling more than $73,000. In court, the commonwealth said Cuthbert deposited checks from the association into her bank account.

The prosecution also revealed that at one point Cuthbert met with a local pastor and confessed to taking money, and expressed that she felt as though she was about to be found out. Cuthbert has paid more than $40,000 in restitution.

It's unclear what the money was used for, but the prosecution says it was not spent on illegal activity.

Cuthbert remains out on bond, but she will be sentenced in January.
