BEND, OR -- A Sisters woman was sentenced, this week, to four years in prison for embezzling from her employer. Prosecutors say Cheryl Waldron took about $430,000 from Robinson and Owen Heavy Construction over several years. Waldron was the bookkeeper and office manager for the construction company for 17 years.


She was arrested in March and pled guilty in August to Aggravated Identity Theft, Forgery and Theft. The Deschutes County District Attorney says she failed to comply with a restitution deal that could have cut her prison time in half. DA John Hummel says Waldron was given two months to pay $200,000 toward restitution and could sign the title of her property over to the victim to cover that amount. However, he says, liens on the property - including unpaid property taxes - reduced the value of the property to just over $100,000. 
In addition to the four years in prison, the judge ordered Waldron to pay $258,000 in restitution and sign over the title of her property to her former employer.
