A former Adair city clerk and her son have been charged with stealing city funds.

The Iowa attorney general's office says 63-year-old Linda Nichols and her son, 41-year-old Terry Nichols, a city street department employee, were each charged Monday with first-degree theft and felonious misconduct in office.

There is no attorney listed for them in court records. They appeared in court Monday and were released.

A state auditor's report in May found $119,000 in questionable
spending for the city of Adair from 2007 through 2010.

Prosecutors say the Nichols accepted inflated or unwarranted payments, failed to pay municipal utility bills, used city funds to buy goods for their personal use and falsified public records.

If convicted, they each could face up to 15 years in prison.
