Possible Punishment for Embezzler

The Delta County Road Commission is having a special meeting right now.

They’re getting together to hear from an attorney about the Hugo Mattonen case.

They’re also talking about what kind of punishment Mattonen will receive.

He’s a road commission employee accused of misdemeanor embezzlement.

The charge comes from a June incident at the road commission, where Mattonen was a stock clerk.

The county sheriff’s office has been handling the case, and they haven’t said what they believe was stolen.

Mattonen has already been suspended from his job without pay.

He lives in Gladstone, and he’s also on the Gladstone City Commission.

Mattonen was appointed to the city commission in December 2006.

His term runs until November of next year.
