Woman gets probation for embezzlement from Calumet trucking company


PRIMGHAR, Iowa -- A Calumet, Iowa, woman who stole more than $30,000 from her employer has been placed on probation.

District Judge Don Courtney on Monday sentenced Jamie Riedemann, 33, to a deferred judgment and placed her on probation for four years. Riedemann had earlier pleaded guilty in O'Brien County District Court to first-degree theft and credit card fraud.

Riedemann also must pay Calumet Carriers $30,000 in restitution, which, according to Courtney's sentencing order, will constitute a full payment of restitution even though total damages exceed that amount.

Riedemann, who was the business office manager at the Calumet trucking company, was arrested in August and charged with turning in fraudulent time cards that resulted in overpayment to her of more than $10,000 from January 2014 through August 2016.

Riedemann also used company credit cards and checks and wrote company checks to herself to pay for thousands of dollars in personal expenses, including clothing, meals, groceries and electrical work to a property she owned. She also spent company money to buy computers for the City of Calumet and the Calumet Fire Department.
