DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) - A Dyersburg former insurance agent is scheduled for sentencing next month after she entered guilty pleas to felony theft charges.

Tina Butler was indicted on charges that she took insurance premium money from 16 clients and used it for herself, never providing the coverage the clients were paying for. The State Gazette  reported Butler entered guilty pleas last week.

A police investigation began a year after the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance revoked Butler's insurance provider license after numerous complaints were filed against her.

She has asked for judicial diversion, but her plea does not guarantee it when she is sentenced Oct. 30.
