Vicki Renae Maxwell, a former employee of the Oxford American magazine, pleaded guilty to theft and forgery charges and was sentenced to three months in prison.  Maxwell embezzled $100,000 from the OA during her time as an office manager there.  The magazine's publisher, Warwick Sabin, said in a statement that he's looking forward to moving on.

"The Oxford American is very pleased to close this unfortunate chapter in its history and continue to produce an acclaimed publication that has won two National Magazine Awards and other high honors. This plea arrangement requires the full repayment of the funds that were embezzled, with the threat of further punishment if that obligation is not fulfilled. We are glad that the crime was acknowledged, and now that the case is resolved, we look forward to re-focusing attention on the innovative and inspiring content that The Oxford American uniquely offers," Sabin said.
