A Perham woman who admitted Monday to stealing from an eye clinic where she used to work may avoid jail if she repays what she took, a prosecutor said.


Ruth Ann Ramsay, 51, pleaded guilty in Otter Tail County (Minn.) District Court to one count of theft.

Under a plea agreement, she would avoid jail time if she pays restitution of more than $125,000 before her sentencing Nov. 17, said Michelle Eldien, assistant Otter Tail County attorney.
