Maceluch could get 3 to 9 years in prison at sentencing, authorities said.

She stole from an Locust Valley architecture firm, a theft that was discovered in late 2011 when an internal audit of the company uncovered discrepancies in the accounts payable and accounts receivable, officials said. Maceluch was fired shortly thereafter.
