In July, Kilpatrick pleaded not guilty to multiple charges including taking and transferring money without consent.

A month later, changed her plea to guilty to one count of Theft-Take/Use/Transfer Movable Property Without Consent.

Kilpatrick said she didn’t realize how much money had been taken.

Court documents show 15 transactions between March of 2020 and March of this year with a total withdrawal amount of $28,600.
