Wisconsin grandmother facing prison time for business theft


January 7, 2015

BARABOO - A 75-year-old Wisconsin grandmother faces up to six years in prison if a judge decides she failed to comply with a deferred prosecution agreement and repay money she allegedly embezzled.

Judith Dunn of Kenosha pleaded no contest to three counts of business theft in 2009. She was sentenced to probation and counseling for the two misdemeanor charges and the felony charge was withheld as part of an agreement with the Sauk County District Attorney's Office.

A news outlet reports Dunn agreed to pay more than $9,500 to the company that owns the Ramada Limited Hotel plus a 15 percent surcharge. Prosecutors say she failed to reach the terms of the agreement by the October 2014 deadline and is now facing prison time on the felony charge.

The former Wisconsin Dells resident is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
