Former HACC VP guilty of stealing $228,000

(Harrisburg) -- A former Harrisburg Area Community College vice president has pleaded guilty to wire fraud for buying $228,000 worth of Target gift cards online using a college credit card, then using them to buy items for herself, her family and her friends.

Fifty-five-year-old Nancy Rockey, of Harrisburg, had already resigned from the school in February 2012 during an administrative shake-up before the thefts were discovered.

Dauphin County prosecutors charged Rockey in January before turning over the case to federal authorities who charged her last month.

Defense attorney Adam Klein wouldn't say why Rockey stole the money, but says she ``has taken full responsibility for her actions and is prepared to face the consequences.''

Investigators say Rockey hid the thefts by submitting bogus purchasing invoices to the school.
