I have been employed at my office for only 6 months. We write our own timesheets, meaning we do not have a clock to punch in and out at. We write our times in and out. Last week, my boss requested that I leave my timesheet up front with the other admin and let her control my time. I know that she is not honest with her own time let alone mine. Do I have any rights against another admin keeping my timesheet?

No, you have no rights against this. Your employer is free to designate or delegate to any employee (i.e. any coworker) it wants to handle other employees' timesheets: the employer, not you, decides who is in charge of or responsible for keeping time, administrating the process, etc.
