The former director of the Butler County Board of Elections pleaded guilty Wednesday to theft in office.
Xanthippie "Tippi" Slaughter admitted that she stole money from the Butler County Democratic Party when she was treasurer.
Slaughter was fired from her position after being indicted in June. She originally requested to enter rehab for substance abuse, but withdrew that plea.
Party officials said she paid the group back before resigning as treasurer.
Slaughter is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 21. She faces six to 18 months in jail and a $5,000 fine.
