ST. CHARLES – A 46-year-old woman has been charged with felony theft on accusations that she stole more than $100,000 from her former employer, according to the St. Charles Police Department.

A St. Charles attorney with an office on Dean Street came to police in mid-March after a January audit showed Jordan E. Terry made unauthorized money transfers from the law firm’s accounts, police spokesperson Paul McCurtain said.

Terry, of the 0N400 block of Ford Drive, Geneva, resigned from the firm in June 2012 and had worked there for seven and a half years, McCurtain said.

After St. Charles police investigated, Terry was charged with theft, a Class 1 felony. If convicted, she could face four to 15 years in prison with the possibility of probation.

Terry turned herself in Monday, McCurtain said. She was released on a $10,000 cash bond, which McCurtain said was 10 percent of her $100,000 bail.

Terry is expected in court at 9 a.m. April 25.
