WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - The former Lebanon Chamber of Commerce Director was sentenced Tuesday for allegedly stealing over $20,000, Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell announced.
Sara Arseneau, 53, was ordered to pay $20,849.22 in restitution and sentenced to 60 days in jail before Warren County Common Pleas Judge Robert Peeler.
Fornshell said Arseneau stole over $20,000 from her employer, the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce, by issuing herself 13 additional payroll checks from November 2012 through June 2015.
At the time, she was employed as the executive director of the Chamber of Commerce and her duties included writing checks and releasing documents for tax purposes.
"Sara Arseneau violated the trust of so many people in the local business community, all for her own selfish greed. She offered no explanation, gave no apology, and showed no real remorse," said Fornshell in a release.
In addition to paying restitution and spending 60 days in jail, Arseneau must complete 200 hours of community service.
