ALBANY, New York — A former village treasurer on Long Island has pleaded guilty to a charge that she stole nearly $60,000 from the village to help pay for online shopping and her divorce expenses.

Andrea Brosnan pleaded guilty Wednesday in Suffolk County Court.

New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said the 43-year-old former treasurer of Old Field also claimed nearly $13,000 in unearned salary. Authorities say she used the village account to also pay personal credit card, utility and cellphone bills.

The inappropriate payments were discovered by state auditors last year.

Brosnan was sentenced to community service and is required to pay back the money she took. A phone number for Brosnan, a Port Jefferson resident, could not be found Wednesday.
