Milam County's former treasurer, who resigned over accusations she stole from the office, pleaded guilty on Monday to a third degree felony charge of tampering with evidence, in exchange for prosecutors not seeking a second indictment before a grand jury on a separate theft charge.
Donna Orsag, 57, of Cameron, entered her tampering plea on Tuesday before 20th Judicial District Court Judge John W. Youngblood.
Milam County District Attorney Bill Torrey is requesting the judge sentence Orsag to "shock probation," where she would be sent to prison in Huntsville for 180 days then be placed on regular probation for five years if she maintained good behavior while in Huntsville.
Paralegal Donelle Keen said Orsag had no prior criminal history.
Orsag was accused of stealing roughly $9,700, which prosecutors will also ask the judge to order her to pay back in restitution.
A sentencing hearing was scheduled for 9 a.m. on May 1.
