Former Oneida Township clerk pleads guilty to embezzlement

EATON CO., Mich (WLNS) – The former Oneida Township clerk today pled guilty to ten felony counts related to the embezzlement of township money.

40-year-old Trevor Robinson made his guilty plea today to one count of embezzlement, four counts of uttering and publishing and five counts of unauthorized financial transaction device use.

According to Eaton County Prosecutor Douglas Lloyd, Robinson stole the money between September 2015 and January 2016. Lloyd said Robinson admitted to stealing Oneida Township money by writing unauthorized checks to himself and using the Township credit card for his own use.

Robinson also agreed to pay back $37,000 for related acts in Eaton, Ingham and Clinton Counties and reimburse Oneida Township for expenses related to the investigation.

Prosecutors in Ingham and Clinton County will not seek to try Robinson for the check and credit card frauds in their counties. The US Attorney also said there will be no federal bankruptcy fraud charges sought against Robinson.
