Montgomery woman to be sentenced for stealing from local swim team

MONTGOMERY, Ohio (FOX19) - A Montgomery woman is awaiting sentencing after admitting to stealing $175,000 from a local swim club.

Lynn Gottschalk pled guilty to stealing money from the Sycamore Flying Fish swim team from 2004 to 2009.

Gottschalk is currently free after being released on her own recognizance by a Hamilton County Judge. Gottschalk is facing up to 18 months in prison on this charge.

This is not the first time that she has had a run in with the law involving money. Gottschalk has a history of theft and passing bad checks.

Jim Morrison, current Sycamore swim team treasurer, says that the problem was discovered by the bank during the change of personnel in 2009.

The $175,000 had been taken and financial records had been forged in attempts to cover up the theft.

During the five year period, financial records show that Gottschalk used the money on car payments, vacation cruise tickets, summer camp for her daughter and theater tickets.

Records also show that she forged coaches names on checks payable to her.

Currently she has paid back $50,000 to the club. Court documents show that she hopes to pay back the other $125,000 before she is sentenced in January.
