Independence Woman Sentenced for Stealing from School Booster Club

An Independence woman was sentenced earlier this fall for stealing money from a school booster club.

The Buchanan County Attorney’s Office says 48-year old Jennifer Reuther was sentenced September 30th, receiving two 10-year suspended prison sentences for First Degree Theft and First Degree Fraudulent Practice.

While acting as the treasurer for the Mustang Athletic Boosters between 2015 and 2019, Reuther fraudulently altered the group’s financial records and stole over $36,000.

Reuther received a 10 year suspended sentence for each charge and was placed on probation supervision through the Department of Correctional Services for up to five years and must repay the stolen money to the Mustang Athletic Boosters.
