South Dakota Woman Sentenced For Embezzling Nearly $300K

Sandra Tawzer, 32, of Arlington, South Dakota, has been sentenced to 150 days in jail for embezzling nearly $300,000 from Tri-State Battery where she had been employed as a bookkeeper.  According to authorities, over a period of about 5 years, from April 1, 2006 through May 9, 2011, Tawzer siphoned funds from the company by manipulating the payroll, overpaying herself and others and keeping the difference.  The reduced sentence was given resulting from her already repaying about $250,000 of the $285,000 Tawzer stole.  She must complete the restitution as well.  The theft came to light in 2011.
