Former Lake Taylorville Employee Sentenced To Probation For Theft

A former Taylorville employee has been sentenced to two years probation for a theft case while she worked for a Lake Taylorville Concession Stand in 2020.  64-year-old Robbin A. Sheets formerly of Taylorville was charged with theft of between $10,000 and $100,000 while she worked for Lake Taylorville.  Police say it had been going on for a while. 


With money missing from various accounts, an undercover police officer went to the lake to rent a jet ski.  The next day there was no record of the transaction and Sheets was brought in for questioning where she confessed to taking the money. 


Some of the money that was taken could not be accounted for. An audit showed the amount of money at $3,325 and Sheets will have to pay a total of $4,794 in fines, fees, and restitution. Sheets was sentenced in Christian County Court Tuesday morning.
