A former Menards manager will not see time behind bars for stealing from his employer. 58 year old Timothy Bart appeared before Allen County Common Pleas Judge David Cheney to learn his fate after pleading guilty to one count of theft.
Bart apologized to Menards, the court and his family. He says he found himself in financial difficulties and made a very bad decision when turning to stealing from his employer to pay medical bills.
Judge Cheney said that Bart showed genuine remorse and the chance of the situation happening again is very small. He sentenced Bart to 90 days in the Allen County Jail, suspended, 2 years of community control and restitution to Menards of $22,155.
