Payback Slow in Case of Former EC Treasurer

Payback Slow in Case of Former EC Treasurer

Former Eau Claire County Treasurer Larry Lokken hasn’t paid back much of the money he stole from taxpayers.

The latest numbers show Lokken paid just 356 dollars over the past year. To date, he’s paid just over 18-thousand-dollars of the 700-thousand-dollars he and his former assistant Kay Onarheim were ordered to pay as part of their prison sentences. Onarheim has repaid nearly 90-thousand-dollars. They were convicted of stealing about one-point-three-million-dollars from taxpayers over a number of years. Lokken is asking to be let out of prison early. It’s not clear if his lack of repayments will play a role in that decision.
