The former director of the state-run Martin Luther King Commission pleaded guilty Monday to stealing taxpayer money.

Kimberly Greene pleaded guilty to four felony counts of embezzlement, fraud conspiracy and violation of the Governmental Conduct Act.

She was accused of using phony vouchers to steal an estimated $16,000 from the commission which supports community programs in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Prosecutors say they will ask for the maximum three-year sentence. 

Two other employees who took part in the scheme have already pleaded guilty.
