Final pre-trial date today for alleged JB Contracting embezzler

Posted by wlpo on September 17, 2015

An Oglesby woman accused of embezzling a million dollars from her employer is due back in court today.

Fifty-seven-year-old Connie Steinbach was arrested in November for allegedly stealing over a million dollars while working at JB Contracting in La Salle. The alleged embezzlement happened between 2008 and 2014.

If there’s no deal reached today, Steinbach is scheduled to go to trial on Monday. She’s currently out of custody after posting $10,000 for bond.

Her daughter, Ashia Kolodziej of La Salle is accused of taking part in the scheme with her mom. Prosecutors say at one point she had nearly $300,000 of the stolen money in her possession.

Kolodziej is also out on bond after coming up with $5,000.
