Woman charged for refusing to return money after paycheck mistake

OCONOMOWOC, Wis (WSAU)  It was apparently a computer glitch which resulted in a worker at Stein Garden Center in the City of Oconomowoc getting 10 times the pay she was owed. 47-year old Lynda G. Johnson was paid at a rate of $88.25 cents an hour, instead of the $8.25 she was supposed to get.

She wound up being overpaid by $10,000.

The company discovered the error about a month after Johnson quit last May. When contacted, she first said she didn’t know anything about the money. Later she told a Waukesha County Sheriff’s detective she thought the money had come from her aunt and she had already spent it on a new roof for her home. Then she said she had no intention of repaying it, saying it was the company’s mistake – not hers.

She’s been charged and, if convicted, could spend up to six years in prison. Johnson returns to court March 25th.
