Lake Land College Employee Terminated, Charged With Theft –

MATTOON, IL. (ECWd) –

This is a common situation that we discover time and time again in nearly every public body we look at.
We saw this in:

-DeWitt County Probation Office (here),
-Arcola Township (here),
-Edgar County Housing Authority (here),
-Edgar County ETSB,
-Ford-Iroquois Public Health Department,
-Effingham County Public Health Department,
-East Central Illinois Mass Transit District (here),
-Paris City Council (here),
-and even with the Mayor of Paris (here) and (here).

ALL of them constitutional violations and felonious actions left unprosecuted.

What makes this particular incident unusual is that apparently the LLC Trustees informed the Coles County State’s Attorney, who is actually pressing charges. Go figure…that is what appears to be uncommon in this case.

Without further comment, here is the article from the jg-tc.com website:

Tammy Boeser was arrested on suspicion of theft, according to a news release that the college and the Coles County State’s Attorney’s Office issued jointly.

Boeser is charged with making personal purchases with a college credit card over roughly a four-year period, State’s Attorney Brian Bower said Friday. He said the charge alleges the theft of at least $10,000 but the investigation is continuing and an exact amount hasn’t been determined.

The release also said the college has made changes to its purchasing and credit card procedures.

  1. The interesting side to this story is that she reportedly suffered a pretty significant head injury from a fall that happened on Lakeland Campus, about 1 or 1 1/2yrs ago. She was off work for quite some time.

  2. Well, I’m trying to remember. In part, yes, he reportedly used a co-worker’s info / ID to obtain a credit card. There was much more to it. I briefed Kirk on it, right after he was fired.

  3. Don;t forget the Coles-Cumberland-EDGAR co. Probation Office lout who was escorted out by the Chief Judge.
