Former camp manager says theft charges not appropriate



BRADY TWP — The former manager of a popular local campground allegedly told investigators that she stole thousands of dollars to care for her family.
Margaret Skelley, 38, of Center Township is accused of taking more than $26,000 over two years.
However, in a telephone interview Tuesday, an emotional Skelley said, “I don’t think I’m guilty.”
Skelley, who said she was in the process of hiring a lawyer, is charged with felony counts of theft by unlawful taking, theft by failure to make required disposition of funds and receiving stolen property.
The campground is owned by the Moraine Camplands Association board.
Skelley reportedly told police that she was struggling financially in 2013 and used the money for “everyday things such as rent, food and clothing.”
However, during a telephone interview with the Eagle Tuesday, Skelley said only that she felt the charges were not appropriate.
