Guilty Plea for Sioux City Accountant

A plea deal has been reached with a Sioux City accountant who was accused of stealing $150,000 from a client.

Terry Lockie has pleaded guilty to Dependent Adult Abuse.

In return, a theft charge against her was dropped.

The judge suspended a five year jail term, but ordered Lockie to pay restitution to the victim. She will also be placed on probation and forced to pay a $750 fine.

Court records show Lockie withdrew funds from the victim and put them into her own account.
