Former UIS employee charged with theft

Sangamon County authorities Friday filed a theft charge against a former University of Illinois Springfield employee.
Lois “Jill” Bohn, 60, of Decatur was placed on administrative leave Sept. 27 and resigned from the UIS Office of Development Sept. 29.

Bohn has been charged with one count of felony theft for allegedly taking $5,692 from the University of Illinois Foundation between Jan. 15, 2010, and Aug. 30, 2010. She allegedly submitted travel vouchers and received payment for meetings that never occurred.

No court date has been set because Bohn is ill and unable to appear, authorities said.

The story was reported in a March 5, 2011, edition of The State Journal-Register.
