Good question. I don't think she's out of the woods though.
Did she admit wrong doing? Or does that need to be investigated and proven?
I thought she and Helen directly contradicted each other's testimony. Some lied. Who?
[u]Would disciplinary action be appropriate prior to an investigation?
Certainly and in fact, it would help in a criminal investigation. One is an employer action, the other a criminal action.
She doesn't play, she won't go along with what she knows is not right, much less illegal.
Perhaps but why then would she lie about having written up the deputy clerk?
