Former RPI employee faces theft sentence

Posted: Updated:

TROY, N.Y. (AP) - A former Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute employee faces up to nine years in prison for stealing more than $350,000 from the university.

Christine Dickson pleaded guilty in October to grand larceny. She admitted she used an RPI-issued credit card to steal $367,901 between 2003 and 2009 when she was a business coordinator in the School of Architecture.

The 56-year-old Dickson is scheduled to be sentenced in Rensselaer County Court on Monday to three to nine years in prison and to pay $25,000 in restitution for the amount not covered by insurance.
