Former Illinois State Municipal Alderman Sentenced In $229K Misappropriation Case

Thomas M. Faulker, 41, of O'Fallon, Illinois, was sentenced to six months home confinement and three years probation for misappropriating $229,000 from Nestle Purina's Petcare and its subsidiary, Check Mark Communications, where he had been employed as head of marketing. He was also sentenced to perform 200 hours of community service. Faulkner previously had served as an alderman for the municipality of O'Fallon, Illinois. Faulkner had plead guilty last October to one felony count of mail fraud for misusing the company credit card and submitting fraudulent expense reports for cover personal trips to Walt Disney World and college football games. The misappropriations possibly date back as far as 2005 and lasted until June 2009. Thus far he has repaid approximately $100,000 in restitution, according to reports.
