Tiffin, Ohio — A former publisher of the Tiffin Advertiser-Tribune entered a guilty plea Tuesday in Seneca County Common Pleas Court on a felony theft charge.
55-year-old Christopher A. Dixon, of Tiffin, was charged in April with aggravated theft, a third-degree felony.
According to court documents, between 2011 and 2019, Dixon allegedly falsified reimbursement forms to steal between $150,000 and $750,000 from West Virginia-based Ogden Newspapers Inc., the parent company of the A-T.
Dixon was indicted on Apr. 21 and was booked into the Seneca County Jail before being released on bond.
Dixon previously pleaded not guilty to the charge in May, according to Seneca County Common Pleas Court records.
The penalty for an aggravated theft charge carries a maximum sentence of 36 months, and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
A sentencing date has not yet been scheduled.
