Probation for man caught in a pickle gets five year probation.
The 64-year-old Plattsmouth man took over $10,000 from the pickle and petty cash funds at Plattsmouth Eagles FOE #365. Cass County District Court Judge Randall Rehmeier followed the sentencing recommendation of the defense and prosecution which includes partial restitution to the insurance company that covered the Eagles club’s losses.
The Cassgram reports James L. Mayabb, who was a trustee at the club, will be paying $100 a month for the 60 months. Deputy Cass County Attorney Steve Sunde said that’s all Mayabb is able to afford and the insurance company can file a civil case if it hopes to recoup the rest of the missing money. The first $250 will be paid directly to the Eagles because that was the deductible amount on the policy.
Sunde said Mayabb admitted to investigators he took somewhere around $10,000 between June of 2011 and September of 2012 and spent all the money on food, drinking and gambling.
Mayabb, who pled guilty to a Class III felony, apologized to the court and the Fraternal Order of Eagles. “It got out of control,” he said.
Rehmeier told Mayabb he made “a bad mistake. I think you’re aware of that.”
