A former librarian in Ventura County entered a guilty plea to charges that she stole hundreds of thousands of dollars in library funds.

Prosecutors say during an eight year long period, the 55 year old Thousand Oaks woman used a library credit card and a library ATM for personal use. They say she embezzled approximately $500,000.
Ferguson entered guilty pleas to charges of misappropriation of public funds and falsifying public accounts.
