Waupun Woman Sentenced to 90 Days in Jail for Embezzlement at Holiday Food and Sports

(Beaver Dam) A Waupun woman who embezzled over $20,000 from Holiday Food and Sports will spend 90 days in jail. Rhonda Bookout, who was a manager at the stores in Waupun and Beaver Dam, pleaded “no contest” yesterday (Th) to an amended charge of Theft In A Business Setting. According to the criminal complaint, the 42-year-old admitted to taking not only the money but also books of lottery tickets over a three year period. Bookout would reportedly scan the items, accept the money and then void the transaction. She says she paid back the money for all the lottery tickets, after she collected the winnings. In addition to jail time, Bookout was placed on probation for three years. A restitution hearing is scheduled for October 4.
