Sentencing today for massive embezzlement in Antigo
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.

TOMAHAWK - A two-time World Snowmobile Derby Champion raced for something bigger than just himself at last month's derby.

Tomahawk native Nick Van Strydonk decided to design a custom racing suit and matching helmet to be auctioned off the last day of the derby.

Wednesday, he lived up to that promise with a larger donation than he ever expected.

"I'm glad I was at work and sitting down in my chair because it was mind blowing," said Van Strydonk.

At this year's derby in Eagle River, Van Strydonk raced in a custom made suit and helmet which he planned to auction off the last day of the derby.

"It was actually a really cool suit and I only wore it once," said Van Strydonk.

He planned to raise enough money to send at least three veterans on the Never Forgotten Honor Flight which is about $1,500 but much like his competition, he blew that goal away.

"I believe we were just at $5,000," said Van Strydonk.

Strydonk donated $3,000 to the Honor Flight Foundation which will send six veterans on an upcoming flight. He also gave Wounded Warriors $1,000 and $500 to the Tomahawk VFW Post Wednesday.
