KODIAK (AP) -- Former Kodiak resident Linda Resoff has pleaded no contest to second-degree theft for allegedly stealing nearly $30,000 from Pen Air while working for the commuter airline.

Resoff, 42, will be sentenced July 18.

As part of an agreement, Resoff will serve 60 days in jail and be on probation for five years. She also must pay Pen Air $29,886, plus approximately $3,000 in interest and $15,000 in audit and accounting costs.

Maximum sentence for second-degree theft is five years in jail and a $50,000 fine. Resoff will serve a maximum of 60 days in jail if she pays Pen Air the full restitution before sentencing, according to the agreement.

The agreement is ''rather lenient,'' said Betty Gonzalez, a Pen Air comptroller who attended Tuesday's hearing.

Pen Air last winter moved all but one plane out of Kodiak and will shut down operations completely Aug. 31.
