2010 Big Year For Embezzlement Cases In Michigan Region

According to a report in the Daily Press, there were six embezzlement convictions in Delta and Menominee Counties, Michigan in 2010 with reported losses of at least $400,000. A seventh case with reportedly losses of more than $800,000 did not go to trial due to the death of the defendant.

Those cases included the following:
  • Janet Lynn Hoier, of Escanaba, 38, embezzled nearly $13,000 from the Escanaba Walmart
  • Janet Ann Bussineau, 56, of Gladstone, embezzled nearly $24,000 from a local non-profit
  • Amanda Jean Porath, 37, of Escanaba, embezzled at least $30,000 from Creative Composites
  • Margaret Frances Jorasz, 51, of Wilson, embezzled more than $300,000 from Harris Township
  • Debra Kathleen Golzynski, 35, Gladstone, embezzled as much as $20,000 from a fund raiser
  • Debra Niemela, 56, of Rock, embezzled at least $2,000 from a neighbor she was caring for
  • An unnamed woman was being investigated for embezzling at least $800,000 from the Big Bay de Noc School, but she died prior to the case being adjudicated
