A woman awaiting a Wednesday hearing on a charge that she embezzled $30,000 from the Green Bay Swim Club had her probation revoked Monday on an earlier fraud charge. Vicki Patterson, 36, formerly known as Vicki Vandenbusch, must spend six months in the Brown County Jail, Brown County Judge Tim Hinkfuss said.
The revocation was because of the new charges of embezzlement and because Patterson violated terms of her probation on the fraud case by failing to tell her probation agent that she was taking a job that would require her to handle the swim club’s money, Hinkfuss said. The fraud conviction stems from a June 20, 2008, incident in which Patterson opened a new account at an area bank and deposited an $8,000 check purportedly drawn on her husband’s business account, then tried to withdraw money from the new account. The business account had actually been closed for two years, and there was no money backing the $8,000 check, according to the complaint.
