Sentencing today for massive embezzlement in AntigoSubmitted: 08/02/2013
Story By Newswatch 12 Newsteam

GREEN BAY - A woman accused of embezzling close to half a million dollars at an Antigo business will pay the price today.

Sentencing happens this afternoon in federal court for Susan Tatro.

She used to be the Human Resources Director at the Waukesha Bearings plant in Antigo.

Tatro faced more than 30 counts of federal wire fraud, but reached a deal to plead guilty to two counts.

She will still face up to 20 years in prison... and would have to pay back everything the feds say she stole.

The latest estimate was 462-thousand dollars.

Tatro has questioned the government's estimate.

Tatro was fired in 2011 when the company discovered financial records didn't add up.

In a letter to the court, the defense conceded Tatro took money from her employer on a number of occasions, and acknowledged she had a serious gambling problem.

Students at Phillips High School got to learn about how hard it is to drive while impaired or distracted.

The Phillips Police Department and school district hosted The Save A Life Tour for students Friday afternoon. It teaches kids the negative impacts of impaired driving.

Students took turns in two different chairs to feel what distracted driving feels like.

"One is simulating being impaired or intoxicated, and it shows what happens while the students are driving that," said Phillips Police Department Lieutenant Al Cummings. "The other one is regarding distracted driving, and actually students need to answer text messages while they're driving."
