The former director of Pottruck, Amy Wagner, paid a final installment of $10,000 in restitution to Penn and will now have her criminal record expunged, after she was charged with taking items from Pottruck in May.
Wagner was charged with stealing cash collected as part of guest fees to Pottruck, as well as items from the lost and found which she later sold on eBay, a spokesperson for the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office said. The items she was charged with stealing included iPods, watches, jewelry and sneakers.
Wagner’s acceptance to the program was approved last Wednesday in a meeting before the Philadelphia Senior Common Pleas Court Judge, Harvey W. Robbins.
Wagner, who was director of Pottruck since 2007, paid $2,417.50 last Thursday as restitution to Penn and to cover court costs. Under the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program — the program through which Wagner’s record will be expunged — her criminal record will be cleared if she completes two years of probation.
“We’re really grateful that the district attorney and Penn agreed to a resolution, which was very fair and at the end of the day makes everybody whole,” Mariana Rossman, Wagner’s attorney, told the Inquirer. Rossman did not respond to requests from The Daily Pennsylvanian to comment.
Wagner’s employment at Penn was terminated in May after she was charged with the thefts.
