A former firefighter from Darlington who
was recently convicted of stealing money
from the fire departments checking account,
will do jail time.
Specific information about the jail sentence
ordered by Judge Thomas Vale for Jon Grossen
wasn’t listed on-line. But according to Darlington
Police Chief Jason King, Grossen has been
sentenced to a six-year deferred prosecution
agreement for pleading guilty to a charge of
theft from a business setting in excess of
$10,000. As part of that sentence, Grossen
has to pay over $45,000 in restitution to
the fire department. For pleading guilty to
a charge of misdemeanor theft, Grossen
has been sentenced to three-years probation.
And for pleading guilty to two counts of
forgery, Judge Vale has ordered Grossen to
serve six-months in the Lafayette County Jail.
