Charged with aggravated theft, Amanda Hahn of Austintown will avoid trial by accepting a plea agreement to repay the money she stole while employed in the office of Dr. Gregory Zinni of Canfield. 

Investigators said Hahn used stolen cash deposits, forged checks, fraudulent payroll amounts, and the misuse of credit cards to embezzle more than $182,000 from the family physician over several years. 

In court on Wednesday, the prosecutor said the plea agreement calls for an upfront payment of $75,000 followed by a recommended $1,000 payment per month to make Dr. Zinni whole. 

Hahn's attorney questioned whether she would be able to comply with that amount each month, and asked that the court make a judgment regarding what the total restitution should be and how it would be paid. 

Judge Jack Durkin said he would make that determination at final sentencing after reviewing all aspects of the case. Hahn remains free on her own recognizance.
