BRIGHTON, Mich (WLNS) – A Brighton woman will not have to pay back any more money she stole from a local Boy Scout Troop.
According to our media partners at WHMI, Kristen Vieau, 57, was originally charges with embezzlement of between $20,000 and $50,000 from Boy Scout Troop 347 in Brighton.
She pleaded guilty through a plea deal to one count of larceny under $200.
Vieau was ordered to pay court fines and costs plus $10,335 in restitution at her sentencing in November 2015.
A treasurer of the troop said that the restitution came up about $4,000 short of what was stolen.
However, Magistrate Jerry Sherwood on Thursday said he did not believe the Boy Scouts had a civil claim and that Vieau had paid the restitution amount both parties agreed to.
