CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A Forest City business owner has been sentenced to two years of probation for embezzling funds from an employee benefit plan.

Owner Anthony Bartleson of Bartleson Masonry also was ordered in U.S. District Court on Tuesday to pay nearly $19,500 in restitution for lost income and tax liabilities.

The Mason City Globe Gazette (https://bit.ly/1A3iq4s ) reports that amount is on top of the nearly $42,000 he’s already paid to the federal government.

Court documents state Bartleson didn’t deposit money from his employees into their retirement accounts. He also didn’t pay the employer matching contribution.

Bartleson admitted to using the money for himself.
