A former Clarke Community School cheerleading coach who was sentenced to probation Feb. 4 after pleading guilty to the charge of one count of second-degree theft, a class D felony, has received a final order of restitution.

Jacqulynn “Jaci” Baumfalk was sentenced to three years of probation Feb. 4 after pleading guilty to the charge of one count of second-degree theft, which dealt with the entities of Clarke Community School District and Clarke County Animal Shelter.

Baumfalk plead guilty to the second-degree theft charge Dec. 5 at Clarke County Courthouse.

Court documents from Clarke County Courthouse state, “During the time period of August 2008 through June 2011, (Baumfalk) did take possession of money belonging to others with the intent to deprive its owners thereof, and/or did misappropriate property exceeding $1,000 in value by disposing of money belonging to others in a manner inconsistent with the owner’s rights.”

OST receives documents

The Osceola Sentinel-Tribune was sent legal documents from Rob Sand, assistant attorney general in the Iowa Attorney General’s Office, on Baumfalk’s final order of restitution.

“It requires payment of over $6,000 to the schools and the performance of 275 hours of community service for the animal shelter,” Sand said.

The legal documents Sand provided state one additional term shall be added to Baumfalk’s probation agreement.

Baumfalk shall be required to perform community service, and the court is further exercising its discretion to allow that community service to be met by a charitable contribution to the animal shelter, in lieu of hours worked.

Baumfalk shall perform 275 hours of service or make a contribution of $2,000, as calculated at minimum wage.

Other restitution

It is further ordered that restitution shall be amended as follows, by agreement of the parties involved in the case:

• $6,620.68 to Clarke Community School District

• $6,739.47 to the office of the auditor of the state

• $100 to Lynn Devore of Osceola

Restitution shall be paid through the Clarke County Clerk of Court.
