Two of the three men charged in Fond du Lac’s Management Information Systems embezzlement scandal pleaded no contest to charges Monday. Thirty-six-year-old Jason Wianecki of Oshkosh, a former MIS employee, pleaded to a felony and a misdemeanor charge. He was sentenced to five months in jail and three years of probation.
Wianecki was apologetic telling the Fond du Lac County courtroom that, “I look forward to having this sad chapter in my life concluded. I promise I will never be so foolish again.”
District Attorney Dan Kaminsky says Wianecki had the least involvement in a scandal in which more than $200,000 in equipment was stolen for personal use through a false-billing scheme.
Forty-six-year-old Emil Devcic of Milwaukee, owner of a company that was a vendor to the City of Fond du Lac, entered no contest pleas to three felonies. He will be sentenced at a later date.
Kaminsky says they also have a plea agreement in place for former MIS worker Jon Lippert. Lippert has a plea and sentencing scheduled in November.
Charges are expected to be filled against two other former MIS workers and another vendor.
