Former Orscheln employee to pay restitution

Judge orders Irene Carter to pay $400 monthly to farm and home store as part of her sentence

 By David Knopf/Richmond News

A former assistant manager for Orscheln Farm and Home in Richmond who pleaded guilty in 2012 to stealing almost $27,000 from the store returned to court April 12 after serving 120 days in prison.

Irene Carter satisfactorily completed what’s referred to as “shock time” in the general prison population and appeared before Judge David Miller to learn the terms of her five-year probation.

Carter will be required to make restitution payments of $400 a month beginning in June and repay Orscheln Farm and Home the $26,793.05 she was convicted of stealing. The court ordered that the repayment be completed within 54 months.

Carter’s probation also includes standard conditions, including no possession or use of alcohol, marijuana or other controlled substances during the five years. She is also required to submit to a search or testing if ordered to by either a police or probation officer and may also be required to enter a drug-and-alcohol counseling program. Carter is further prohibited from entering casinos.

She was sentenced to 50 hours of community service with a minimum of 10 hours a month, and will be required to participate in and complete a Victim Impact Panel.
