PRESTON - Keith Erick Anderson, 55, of LeRoy, was sentenced to 20 years supervised probation after pleading guilty in Fillmore County District Court to embezzling more than $40,000 from the Hiawatha Teachers United checking account, while Anderson was treasurer.

In addition to probation, Judge Benson ordered Anderson to serve 60 days in jail, with credit given for 6 days served. Benson also ordered Anderson to pay a $5000 fine and required him to make restitution of $41,435.95.
