MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A plea deal is apparently set for a former state probation and parole agent accused of borrowing money from criminals she supervised in the Milwaukee area.
45-year-old Sandra Alvarez of St. Francis pleaded not guilty in May to three charges of misconduct in public office.
Online court records show that she has a plea and sentencing hearing Wednesday afternoon. Details of a plea bargain have not been disclosed.
Alvarez was charged after three of her clients told state investigators that they lent her a total of almost $3,000. They said they felt pressured to give her the money, for fear that she might try to revoke their probations and send them back to prison.
Nobody said she actually made that threat. Alvarez resigned earlier this month.
