Court appearance for Garfield County woman charged with embezzlement
A former Garfield County employee is going before a judge this morning. Robin McMillan is charged with stealing from the Clerk and Recorder’s office. The District Attorney’s office says she stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from her work. McMillan faces a class three felony of theft of one hundred thousand dollars up to a million dollars. She’s also charged with a class five felony for embezzlement.
McMillan has not entered a plea as of Wednesday afternoon. She was arrested last August after another accountant at the Clerk and Recorder’s office noticed something was wrong.
Forensics are playing a role in the case, and McMillan’s attorney says that report isn’t done yet... and it made not be available for another week or so. The District Attorney’s office says there will likely be an extension to allow McMillan to enter a plea later on.
