A woman from Carmel will spend the next year and a half behind bars for stealing more than 50-thousand dollars from a doctor’s office in Ellsworth. 50-year-old Rita Worster pleaded guilty in December 2007 to taking the money from a group of doctors at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital. But sentencing was delayed until recently to give her time to pay some of the money back. Hancock County District Attorney Michael Povich says Worster never repaid any it, though.Worster was an office manager for one of the doctors and embezzled the money by writing checks to herself.
