A former Gloversville woman accused of using stolen credit cardspleaded guilty Wednesday in Fulton County Court to second-degree identity theft, a felony.
Tammy M. Auspelmyer, 44, a resident of Fifth Avenue at the time of her December 2009 arrest, pleaded guilty before Judge Richard C. Giardino.
Sentencing is postponed until July, but under terms of the plea bargain Auspelmyer will be sentenced to six months in jail with time concurrent to related sentences in Schenectady and Albany counties. She will also pay restitution in Fulton County of nearly $12,500.
