A former Ashland County-City Health Department employee is headed to jail for stealing more than $89,000 from the department.

Heather Drotleff, 39, of Loudonville, was ordered to serve 60 days in jail in Ashland County Common Pleas Court Monday. She was also fined $2,500 and placed on four years probation.

As part of a plea agreement, Drotleff pleaded guilty to one count of theft in office and agreed to pay $89,061 in restitution. She was also ordered to perform 300 hours of community service.

Drotleff was sentenced to 180 days in jail and had 119 of those days suspended. She was given credit for one day served in jail when she was originally arrested.

Drotleff was a registrar with the health department from July 1997 to January 2012. During her time on the job, Drotleff took funds from the health department's immunization clinics by changing computer records and shredding worksheets.
