Fri 9-10-2021

(Spirit Lake)-- A former employee in the Dickinson County Treasurer's Office originally charged with fraudulent practice in the 3rd degree has pleaded guilty to a reduced offense.

Online court records show Terri Lynn Foss pleaded guilty recently to non-felonious misconduct in office, a serious misdemeanor. A deferred judgment was also granted, meaning her record will remain free of a conviction. She was also ordered to pay a civil penalty and was placed on probation for one year.

Foss was accused of inappropriately accessing county records in March of 2020 and in another incident in June of that year that allegedly involved a duplicate vehicle title.
