COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - The president of the Cincinnati Rolllergirls has pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud Tuesday in the United States District Court in Northern Kentucky.

Mercedes B. Stafford, who skates with the Roller Girls under the name Sadistic Sadie, faces up to 20 years in federal prison for her crime, and a $250,000 fine.

Stafford admitted to fraudulently buying "involuntary tickets" at her job at United Airlines. These tickets are issued when passengers' flights are canceled or delayed. She created fake ticket numbers to buy real tickets for herself, her friends, her family, the Cincinnati Roller Girls, and other individuals associated with roller derby events.

Stafford's actions reportedly cost United between $400,000 and $1 million. A date will be set for sentencing.
