Former commissioner sentenced for embezzlement

Former Berrien County Commissioner Robert Wooley was sentenced on embezzlement and attempted embezzlement charges Monday morning.

Wooley was sentenced to between 34 months and 20 years in prison.

Wooley pleaded guilty to embezzling $100,000 or more from the North Berrien Senior Center in March 2015.

He also pleaded guilty to attempted embezzlement of $20,000 to $50,000 from North Berrien Fire Rescue.

Wooley was a Berrien County Commissioner when he pleaded guilty. He has since been removed from the commission.

He will also have to pay restitution to both parties.
