A former New York deputy sheriff who claimed she fell down the stairs at work has admitted improperly receiving workmen's compensation.

Prosecutors say Barbara Dunn was thrown off a horse in Dutchess County in 2008. They say she then claimed her injuries were caused when she fell down the stairs at the Putnam County sheriff's office in Carmel (kahr-MEHL'), about 50 miles north of New York City.

The Putnam County district attorney says Dunn pleaded guilty Monday to grand larceny. The district attorney says Dunn likely will be sentenced to probation so she can work and pay back $56,000 in benefits.

Dunn was fired last year after being convicted of perjury in an unrelated case. A telephone call to defense lawyer William Aronwald hasn't been returned.
