VAN WERT, OH — Betsy Bollenbacher, the former general manager of Westwood Car Wash, has been sentenced in court on the charges she stole more than $60,000 over a two-and-a-half year period from May 2010 to November 2012, The Van Wert Independent reported.

The March 14 story said Bollenbacher, 39, was sentenced to five years of community control and she has to pay back $10,583.20, which is the amount that was not covered by the carwash's insurance.

Attorney James Tesno said Bollenbacher was "truly remorseful and acknowledged that she had 'crossed over the line' in taking the money."
