Grand Chute American Legion Post 38 ex-manager accused of theft | #College. | #Students

GRAND CHUTE – A former general manager of American Legion Post 38, 3220 W. College Ave., has been accused of stealing at least $22,000 from the business over several years.

Jessica Behrendt, 41, of Hortonville, admitted in an interview with police she embezzled between $20,000 and $30,000 from the American Legion, explaining she felt the business was “cheating” her, according to a criminal complaint filed in December in Outagamie County.

Behrendt has been charged with one count of theft in a business setting, a felony with a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, according to court records.

Behrendt told police she took over the American Legion’s finances toward the end of 2017 but didn’t take any money until six or seven months later, the complaint says.
