Former Missouri Car Dealership Manager Sentenced For $247K Embezzlement

Robin Stockstrum, 40, of St. Charles, Missouri, was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison for embezzling some $247,000 from Jim Trenary Chevrolet in Troy, Missouri, where she had been employed as an office manager. According to authorities, Stockstrum misappropriated car payments and made unauthorized credit card purchases to benefit herself and her relatives. Authorities claimed she intercepted wire transfers of money from General Motors to the dealership and then created phony records and/or doctored the dealership's financial records to conceal her theft. Stockstrum's attorney, John M. Lynch, Esq., claimed that she has a gambling addiction. Stockstrum plead guilty last January to one felony count of wire fraud in a plea agreement. She has also been ordered to pay full restitution.
