Suspended prison sentence for woman accused of taking over $50K from Forest City business
FOREST CITY — It’s a suspended prison sentence for a Titonka woman who embezzled over $50,000 from a Forest City business.
50-year-old Amy Richter was originally charged with one count of first-degree theft and two counts of forgery after a criminal complaint accused her of taking more than $51,000 from Eddy’s Glass and Door by using company credit cards, house charge accounts, payroll claim advances and company checking accounts to purchase goods and services for her personal use.
Richter as part of a plea agreement pleaded guilty to the first-degree theft charge, with the two forgery counts being dismissed.
She was sentenced on Tuesday by District Judge Gregg Rosenbladt to a suspended 10-year prison sentence and placed on five years probation. She was also ordered to pay restitution to the business.
