(AP) A Buffalo County couple has been sentenced for embezzling from their disabled son who was wounded while serving in Iraq.
Michael and Lori Nault of Mondovi pleaded guilty to embezzlement in Eau Claire County yesterday. Michael Nault was sentenced to seven months in jail -- or five months if he does 480 hours of community service. Lori Nault was sentenced to five months in jail or 480 hours of community service. She's their son's primary caregiver.
Prosecutors say the couple embezzled as much as $167 thousand from their son's bank accounts, which were under guardianship of a Minneapolis company.
