Cassville woman convicted of stealing from priest


A Cassville, Wisconsin woman was convicted Thursday of stealing from an 86-year-old priest and his former housekeeper.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office says that 40-year-old Sandee Sue Turner worked as a home healthcare worker in the Kieler, Wisconsin home of Father Francis Dominic and Dolores Schollmeyer between October 2009 and February 2010.

Schollmeyer had been a housekeeper for Father Dominic for over 40 years and required a lot of daily assistance because of a disability.

According to the Sheriff's Office, Turner stole thousands of dollars from Father Dominic and bought a $12,500 truck with money she took from Father Dominic and Schollmeyer.

Turner was found guilty of three counts of theft/false representation/special facts and one count of obstructing an officer. She was found not guilty of one count theft/business setting/special facts.

The Sheriff's Office says Turner was charged with obstructing because of lies she told to the investigating officer when the investigation started in February 2010.

Father Dominic currently lives in a care facility in Platteville, Wisconsin. Dolores Schollmeyer passed away in April 2011.
