Ex-Oostburg village clerk sentenced to prison for embezzlement

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - A former village clerk and treasurer in Sheboygan County was sentenced to three years in prison Thursday – but he’ll stay free on bond until an appeal is completed.

Former Oostburg official Kim Simmelink was convicted of stealing over $341,000 in village funds. His appeal will determine whether the statute of limitations expired on 26 embezzlement charges filed against the 56-year-old Simmelink.

Besides the prison term, Circuit Judge Terence Bourke ordered 7 years of extended supervision. He also told Simmelink to pay back the full $341,000 he stole from the village, plus an additional $34,000.

He was also convicted of embezzlement in 2009.

The current charges were filed after an audit revealed that Simmelink stole a lot more money than was first thought.

Simmelink apologized Thursday, and said he’s been changing to be a more positive presence in the Oostburg community.
