A former employee with the Mills County Treasurer’s Office was sentenced Monday to 25-years in prison on a negotiated felony charge of Ongoing Criminal Conduct. 43-year old Tammy Jo Gammon, of Glenwood, had faced seven charges, including 1st degree theft, felony misconduct in office, and 5 counts of forgery. The sentence she received under the plea bargain was the maximum allowable by law.

The charges against Gammon were the result of a State audit that uncovered more than 182 transactions, which resulted in more than $36,000 being stolen from the Mills County Treasurer’s office.
