Ex-Accountant Admits to Stealing from Mo. Golf Course
LEBANON, Mo. (AP) - A former accountant has admitted stealing more than $91,000 from a south-central Missouri golf course whose bank account she handled.
The Lebanon Daily Record reports former Lebanon resident Carrie L. Robertson, now of Nixa, pleaded guilty Monday in Laclede County Circuit Court.
Circuit Judge Kenneth Hayden ordered Robertson to repay the money within 30 days to GreatLife Golf and Fitness, the Lebanon business she bilked by forging the signatures of board leaders on checks.
Robertson was also sentenced to five years of probation and 90 days in jail, with credit for time served.
The accounting firm that employed Robertson assigned her to the GreatLife account in June 2011. Investigators said she forged dozens of checks before the thefts were discovered in September 2012.
