Chesterfield church embezzlement suspect expected to take plea

Posted: Updated:

A Chesterfield woman accused of embezzling more than $500,000 from a church where she worked is expected to take a plea deal in court Thursday.

Jerri Hunter, 39, is expected to plead guilty to five counts of felony embezzlement. A church spokesperson said the theft took place while Hunter worked at the Chester United Methodist Church over six years.

Chesterfield prosecutes said that if Hunter accepts the plea, she will be sentenced sometime in spring or summer.
