Former DMV clerk pleads no contest to fee thefts

Posted: Friday, November 09, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A former clerk for the state Division of Motor Vehicles has pleaded no contest to stealing from more than 70 customers who were reinstating suspended driver's licenses.

Darcy N. Riley, 28, entered the plea Monday to a charge of second-degree theft. Riley was accused of manipulating a glitch in the agency's computer system in Palmer to steal more than $11,000 in fees from customers.

The glitch allowed Riley to charge drivers the full price of up to $250 to reinstate their licenses and then later record the transaction as a $15 license replacement.

The money was taken only from people who paid cash.

Riley is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 4.
