ATLANTA -- Fulton County District Attorney's officials say a former county employee has pleaded guilty to using a county credit card to buy goods for her business.

District Attorney's spokeswoman Yvette Jones says 40-year-old Nicole Hosier pleaded guilty Wednesday to a 113-count indictment that included 96 counts of forgery.

Hosier was sentenced to two years of home confinement and eight years of probation. Jones says prosecutors asked that Hosier be sentenced to five years in prison.

Officials say Hosier worked as a financial systems supervisor in the county's human services department and used a purchasing card to buy more than $136,000 worth of goods for her event planning business.

She was supposed to use the card to buy items for shelters serving the homeless.

Hosier is also ordered to pay restitution.
