A former Glasgow city employee was sentenced on Monday to five years probation for felony stealing charges. Julie Strodtman, 39, pleaded guilty in November.
The judge sentenced Strodtman to four years in prison, but suspended the sentence and placed her on five years probation. She will also have to perform 120 hours of community service.
The former Glasgow municipal clerk admitted to taking more than $30,000 while she was employed by the city. She has since paid back the money.
ABC 17 News was at Strodtman’s sentencing Monday morning, where her defense attorney said she is “terribly sorry for her actions.”
Ten people–all of whom were Strodtman’s family and friends–attended her sentencing.
A judge also applauded Strodtman’s efforts at paying back the missing funds and receiving counseling. She is currently employed full time.
