Woman Sentenced For Embezzling Nearly $600K
DETROIT (WWJ) – A woman who admitted embezzling about $600,000 from a Grand Rapids bank has been sentenced to 37 months in federal prison.
Joanne Wierenga’s lawyer says she needs help for a gambling addiction more than a long prison stay.
Her sentence on Monday was at the low-end of the guidelines.
Wierenga pled guilty in February to embezzling from Huntington Bank for seven years.
