Former Callaway County Collector sentenced Monday

The former Callaway County Collector who collected a lot of cash for herself is heading to prison.

Pam Oestreich was sentenced Monday to two and a half years without parole, and ordered to pay nearly 400 thousand dollars in restitution.

She pleaded guilty last September to embezzling nearly $300,000 from taxpayers. She apparently started slipping money into her personal account in 2015.

The Fulton native was first elected Callaway County Collector in 2002. She’s expected to be sentenced to between 41 and 51 months in prison.
