Contractor Facing Felony For Antique Power Club Theft

(Burnett) A Watertown contractor is accused of ripping-off the Dodge County Antique Power Club. Steve Neuman is charged with one felony count of Theft in a Business Setting in excess of $10-thousand dollars. The 54-year-old was given $22-thousand dollars for a down payment on building materials to construct a new barn last summer. He reportedly admitted to failing to complete the work and using $12-thousand-to-$16-thousand dollars for living expenses. Neuman allegedly told investigators that he was “laid up and needed money to make it.” If convicted, he faces up to ten years in prison. Neuman is slated to make his initial appearance in a Dodge County courtroom later this month.
