Antigo woman ordered to repay $462,000


GREEN BAY (WAOW) - A federal judge sentenced an Antigo woman to three years in prison Friday and ordered her to repay $462,000 that she embezzled from the company where she worked as a human resources manager, court officials said.

Susan Tatro, 44, was convicted of two counts of wire fraud in a plea agreement.

She was indicted in May 2012 on 30 counts of wire fraud in an embezzlement scheme between 2006 and 2011 at Waukesha Bearings Corp.'s Antigo plant, according to court records.

Prosecutors say she wrote checks to herself off the company petty cash account and kept the money.

Terri Ficek, deputy clerk of courts for the U.S. District Court in Green Bay, said Judge William Griesbach sentenced Tatro to three years in prison on each conviction and ordered the sentences to be served at the same time. She was also ordered to serve three years of supervised release.

Tatro must begin paying the restitution 30 days after she is freed from prison, Ficek said.

The indictment said Tatro, who started working for Waukesha Bearings in 1986 in the computer department and was named human resources director in Antigo in 1990, wrote more than 300 checks to herself totaling $540,000 between January 2006 and January 2011, but she claimed no more than $40,000 was wrongly diverted and the rest paid for company business.

Court records said the maximum punishment for each conviction of wire fraud was 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
