Town Clerk Imprisoned for Embezzlement

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (AP) - A former clerk for a northeastern Iowa town has been given 21 months in prison for embezzling more than $81,500 in public funds.   

Former Masonville clerk Christine King was sentenced in federal court in Cedar Rapids on Monday. She'd pleaded guilty to mail fraud. She also was ordered to pay more than $81,500 in restitution to Masonville and $10,000 in restitution to an insurance company.   

In a plea agreement, she admitted that she issued herself fraudulent payroll and expense reimbursement checks between July 2002 and October 2011.   

King says she falsely inflated the balances on the town's bank accounts on reports provided to the town council and state auditor.   

Masonville is a town of around 125 residents that sits about halfway between Waterloo and Dubuque.
