Cheryl and Paul Hansen
The former managers of the Airport Mini-Mall and Apartments, convicted of theft for misplacing rent deposits, will have to pay back $59,923.25 cents in restitution.
Cheryl and Paul Hansen will have to pay it back at a rate of $300 a month. They are already 68 and 64 years old. The restitution amount and payback rate was set during a hearing in Juneau Superior Court on Thursday. The Hansens were not able to attend and attorneys hashed out the stipulated agreement on their behalf.
Last April, the Hansens were sentenced to two-years in prison with two-years suspended – or no time to serve. The Hansens changed their pleas to guilty to reduced charges of second degree felony theft a year ago.
The couple started work as managers of the Airport Mini-Mall and Apartments in 2001. Cheryl did the bookkeeping and Paul did the maintenance in exchange for a $1000 monthly stipend and use of a two bedroom house with paid utilities. Prosecutors have said that owners of the Mall discovered at least $68,870 in rent deposits were missing after the Hansens left their employment in June 2010.
During a long hearing on Wednesday, also in Juneau Superior Court, 41-year old Joseph Nell was sentenced to serve as much eight years in prison for sexual abuse of a minor. The total sentence of twenty years with twelve years suspended handed down Wednesday was the result of a plea and sentence agreement with prosecutors. He could be out in five years with credit for good time. The final charge of second degree sexual abuse of minor stemmed from the alleged abuse of a child over seven years.
