It took nearly three years, but a man charged with embezzling more than $11,000 from a Blissfield business was sentenced Nov. 21 in Lenawee County Circuit Court.
Sam Astalosh, 40, Selden, Kansas, was given two years’ probation and ordered to pay $550 in court costs on a reduced charge of embezzlement less than $200 from Steve’s Hobbies. His sentence also included 56 days already served in the Lenawee County Jail.
