Onalaska woman sentenced in federal court for embezzlement

MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) - An Onalaska woman learned her sentence Thursday on a federal charge of embezzlement.

Linda C Germann, 57, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge WIlliam Conley to three years of probation.

Germann pleaded guilty in September to stealing money from a federally insured credit union.

Beginning in October of 2013, Germann stole $14,813.19 from Altra Federal Credit Union.

She used various methods including: misappropriation of stale dated cashier's checks; the creation of false debit card losses; the issuance of 'instant issue' automated teller machine cards (debit cards) to obtain account access; the re-issuance of stale dated gift cards; and the utilization of dormant accounts and 'bad address' accounts.

Judge Conley noted during the sentencing that Germann stole the money because of debts due to a gambling problem.
