Indiana Project Manager Who Embezzled Gets 4 Year 7 Month Federal Sentence

            An Indiana man who falsified City of Bloomington construction contract records of concrete quantities to steal $440,000.00 from taxpayers over nearly four years was immediately taken into custody June 9 in federal court to begin serving his 55 month sentence, rather than being given the usual four to six weeks to prepare for imprisonment extended to non-violent offenders. The sentencing judge, in her instructions to federal marshals to haul away the offender in cuffs right away said she wanted to let taxpayers know public corruption will not be tolerated. “He did violate a huge trust and it would be very symbolic for people in Bloomington to know he will be serving his sentence starting today,” she intoned.
