Sentencing on Tuesday for Former RMC CEO

Sentencing will be held Tuesday for former Regional Medical Center CEO Lon Butikofer.

Butikofer pled guilty to First Degree Theft in October.

He and RMC’s former System Fund Development Director Mike Briggs were arrested in June. The State Auditor’s Office discovered they had accumulated over 256-thousand dollars in expenses for personal trips they claimed were for hospital business. The investigation spanned eight years from January 2009 to March 2017.

Butikofer resigned as CEO of RMC shortly after the concerns surfaced in 2017.

His sentencing will be held at 10:30 am Tuesday in Delaware County District Court.
