Former diner manager sentenced for embezzlement

September 26, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A manager of a Sioux Falls diner has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for embezzling more than $25,000 from her former employer.

A judge Tuesday also imposed a suspended sentence of six years in prison and 90 days in jail for Suzann Patenode which is contingent on paying about $25,000 in restitution and remaining in good standing during her three years of probation. Patenode managed the Phillips Avenue diner.

The Argus Leader reports the judge allowed Patenode to choose electronic monitoring as an alternative to her jail time. An audit showed nearly 100 bank deposits were withheld between March and August of 2017.
