Former Iowa Mayor Gets Jail Time for Theft

FOREST CITY, Iowa (AP) — The former mayor of Scarville has been given 30 days in jail and four years of probation for stealing from her northern Iowa town.

Forty-two-year-old Michelle Hermanson had pleaded guilty to theft and to tampering with records. She was sentenced Tuesday in Winnebago County District Court.

Authorities say Hermanson stole about $10,100 from the city. Her thefts were discovered during a special investigation by the state auditor's office. Hermanson must pay restitution as well.

Former city clerk Jolene Carter's crimes also were discovered by the investigation. In December Carter was sentenced to jail and ordered to pay restitution.
