The former Callaway County Collector is due in court for sentencing on Monday for stealing almost three hundred thousand dollars.
Pamela Oestreich pleaded guilty in September, and admitted to depositing taxpayer funds into her personal bank account.
Oestreich claimed she had a gambling addiction.
According to court records Oesteich’s daughter and several co-workers wrote character reference letters for her yesterday (Thursday).
In January, Oestreich’s attorneys filed a sentencing recommendation asking for 60 days in prison.
Prosecutors are asking for 36 months in prison and three years of supervised release.
