A former South Carolina civil servant has been charged with embezzling money from the town where she worked for her personal use, the Florence County Sheriff’s Office said.

Tina Marie Sullivan was arrested for embezzlement of public funds (less than $10,000), the sheriff’s office said in a statement Tuesday.

The 50-year-old Marion resident was the city clerk of Pamplico, according to the statement.

Between March 23 and August 7, Sullivan used the city’s credit card — without authorization — for various personal transactions totaling $9,406.13, the sheriff’s office said.

Information about Sullivan’s expenses was not available.

Sullivan was taken to the Florence County Detention Center on Tuesday morning, and no bond has been set, according to jail records.

If convicted on the embezzlement charge, Sullivan could face a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison and a fine, under South Carolina law.

Sullivan is scheduled to appear in court again on Feb. 22, 2023, according to Florence County Court records.
