Former treasurer's sentence adjourned


May 15, 2018


Bessemer — Former Ironwood Township Treasurer Jyl Renee Olson-DeRosso was scheduled to be sentenced Monday, however Gogebic County Circuit Judge Michael Pope adjourned the sentencing.

Pope’s decision came after a defense motion requesting the adjournment, according to court documents.

“We opposed the motion and the judge granted the request,” Gogebic County Prosecutor Nick Jacobs said. “Sentencing will be scheduled at some point in the very near future.”

Jacobs said he couldn’t provide any additional information regarding the reason for the adjournment.

In March, Olson-DeRosso, 48, pleaded guilty or no contest to 10 counts related to forgery and embezzlement occurring between 2011 to 2016 while she served as a treasurer.

On Friday, Pope ruled the township was owed $1,398,654 in restitution to cover both the amount stolen and some of the costs the township incurred investigating the embezzlement.

No new sentencing date has been set.
