Aledo Walmart worker pleads guilty to drug charge
One of four Aledo Walmart pharmacy workers facing drug and forgery charges has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors.
Tara Speck, 57, of Monmouth, Illinois was sentenced to 24 months of probation, $2,000 in fines and 30 hours of community service as part of the agreement reached June 3, 2014.
Speck, along with Robert Osborn, 45, of Rock Island, Illinois; Paul DeWilde, 76, of Silvis, Illinois and Laura Diehl, 52, of Aledo, was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of forgery after a months-long internal investigation by the company.
Court records show Speck pleaded guilty Tuesday, June 3, 2014, in Mercer County Court to one count of felony possession of a controlled substance and one count of misdemeanor insurance fraud. A felony forgery charge was dismissed as part of the agreement.
Osborn, DeWilde and Diehl were still awaiting trial.
