Onarheim Released, Restitution Ordered

One of the two who stole over a million-dollars from Eau Claire County taxpayers is out of prison.

Kay Onarheim was released from prison over the weekend. She served just eight years of her 13 year sentence for helping former county treasurer Larry Lokken steal one-point-four million-dollars from the county between 2011 and 2013. She will spend the remaining nine years of her sentence on parole. Onarheim must also pay the county 700 thousand-dollars in restitution.

Lokken remains in prison despite his repeated requests for an early release.
