ARCANUM, Ohio (WDTN) – The Arcanum woman who stole from three estates will spend some time in prison.
Lynette Foureman was sentenced to a year in prison for stealing $134,514 from 2010 through 2014. She must also pay more than $35,000 in restitution.
Bluebag Media reports that she was working as a legal secretary at the time for a Sidney attorney when the thefts occurred.
Foureman pleaded guilty in June, admitting that she stole from the estates of Arthur Schaub, Ruth Schaub and Helen Meyer.
Prosecuting Attorney R. Kelly Ormsby told BlueBag Media, “The money appears, based on her (Foureman’s) statements, seems to have gone in large part to things that don’t make a lot of sense necessarily to the State. When she talks about graduation and gifts to her daughter’s friends… made payments for her daughter to go to college and then the expense of things that her husband liked and encouraged her and wanted to do. Like going out to dinner and buying certain foods that were more expensive.”
