QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) - A former payroll administrator has pleaded guilty in connection with the theft of thousands of dollars from a New York company that helps the disabled.
    
The Post-Star says Alberto Lupia of Moreau has pleaded guilty in Warren County Court to a felony, falsifying business records.
    
Community, Work & Independence, Inc. contacted Glens Falls police last summer about thefts totaling over $16,000.
    
The company has programs in about 40 locations to help people with disabilities and brain injuries.
    
Lupia will spend six months in jail and five years on probation if he can make restitution by his sentencing date, Feb. 14. If the money is not paid back, he could get up to four years in prison.
