A Walworth woman was sentenced to 60 days in jail and two years of probation for stealing from a local nonprofit snowmobiling club as the group’s treasurer, court records show.

Cory Schuh, 44, of 312 High St., pleaded guilty Sept. 4 to two counts of theft in a business setting and one count of disorderly conduct, according to online court records. All three counts are misdemeanors.

Schuh’s jail sentence includes work release privileges. She must also complete 80 hours of community service during her probation term.

Schuh had to pay $4,020.73 in restitution.

A felony theft charge was dismissed and read into the record.

Schuh pleaded guilty to making unauthorized charges and withdrawals from the Blizzard Buzzers Club’s account in late 2016 and 2017, according to the criminal complaint. She was the club’s treasurer since June 2013.

When the club’s board emailed her to ask about missing money and inconsistencies in her reporting, Schuh said she was ashamed, sorry and embarrassed, the complaint states.

She asked to resolve the matter without going to the police, but the board declined.

Schuh paid for goods or services at Walgreens, TJ Maxx and Caribbean Sun Tanning, according to the complaint.

Schuh must start her jail term on or before 8 a.m. Nov. 3.
