CAMERON, Texas (KWTX) Former Milam County Treasurer Donna Orsag, 57, of Cameron, who resigned in September 2017 amid a theft investigation, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony tampering with evidence charge, the Milam County District Attorney’s Office said in a press release.

Sentencing and restitution will be determined after a pre-sentence investigation.

The state is seeking five years’ probation including shock probation, which would require Orsag to spend 180 days in state prison, a $10,000 fine, court costs and restitution of about $9,700.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for May 1.

Milam County commissioners appointed Orsag to fill a vacancy in the office in November 2012 after she won a race for the unexpired term in the November 2012 general election.

She won a second term in November 2014.

Orsag had previously worked as a Milam County real estate agent, an appraiser for Milam County and an office manager for EBCO Development.
