LOCKPORT – A Depew woman who was charged with stealing customers’ credit card numbers while she was working at a Niagara Falls mattress store pleaded guilty Monday.

Donna L. Liberatore, 40, of Seabert Avenue, admitted to third-degree grand larceny and was assigned to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. If she succeeds, her charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor with a probation sentence; if she fails in the program, she faces up to seven years in prison.

Liberatore must repay $15,468 in restitution to the four victims, who made purchases at the Metro Mattress store in the Falls in May and June of last year. She was accused of using the card numbers to make purchases at Metro Mattress and from Mary Kay Cosmetics.
