MORRISTOWN, N.J. -- A New Jersey woman has admitted stealing money from former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Joe Piscopo.

Under terms of a plea agreement, 40-year-old Jennifer LaRocca of Hackettstown pleaded guilty to theft.

LaRocca admitted her husband was hired to pay Piscopo's bills and she unlawfully wrote checks for her own expenses using the funds between 2010 and 2014.

LaRocca has agreed to pay nearly $171,000 in restitution.

Morris County prosecutors will recommend she be sentenced in April to probation on the condition she makes the payments.
