A Brown County judge on Monday ordered a woman convicted of stealing $112,223 while an airport parking cashier to pay $22,223 in restitution.
Deputy Dist. Atty. John Luetscher noted that Standard's insurance company — AIG — paid $90,000 of the amount and Standard Parking made up the rest, which included a $10,000 deductible and investigative and accounting fees.
Kelley ordered Eland to pay the $22,223 to Standard for its losses.
Kelley noted that AIG, in its role as an insurer, took on some of that risk of being a victim voluntarily.
"They get paid to bear that risk," Kelley said, noting that nothing prevents AIG from suing Eland in civil court to recoup its losses.
