Former WCAS employee makes restitution to county
By Susan Johnson
Gloria Ohman-Knox, the former Winnebago County Animal Services employee who was convicted for embezzlement of $10,000 from the county facility, has so far fulfilled the conditions of her sentencing agreement. Dec. 20, 2010, she pled guilty to charges of official misconduct that took place over a five-year period. Associate Judge John R. Truitt ordered the restitution of $10,000, plus fines and costs. No jail time was ordered, but she was placed on probation.
According to Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato, “Her probation was for two years beginning Dec. 20, 2010. She was given a 180-day jail sentence with credit for one day served. She received 179 days stayed, pending the financial terms of probation, one of which was to pay restitution. She was given six months to do it, and she made payment on March 9, 2011. She is still on probation, which ends Dec. 19, 2013. She has been compliant with her probation.”
