FILLMORE COUNTY- A former York County public defender accused of stealing from two private clients has reached a plea deal. A Fillmore County judge last week set a Jan. 9 hearing for 60-year-old Nancy Waldron. The records dont provide details about Waldrons agreement with prosecutors. Shes already pleaded not guilty to felony theft. Questions were raised in nearby Fillmore County about checks Waldron had written to herself on a bank account that belonged to two sisters living in nursing homes, the court records say. Authorities have said she fraudulently billed the two clients and paid herself nearly $187,000 since 2012.
