Former Fate City secretary convicted of theft

Add another Rockwall County public servant to the list of those convicted of theft of public property.

Sandra Lobban, who retired in June, 2008, from her job after many years as the secretary and sole bookkeeper for Fate, was sentenced last month by Rockwall District Court Judge Brett Hall to five years probation and ordered to pay the City back for $7,586.29.

She had made the purchases at Walmart using a credit card for such items as food, cigarettes, toys, drink mixes and more.

The above sum is just the amount that they could tabulate. New Fate City Manager Vicki Mikel said the records in some cases were such a mess that they couldn’t make sense of it and had to finally settle on a number so they could move on.

She said Fate records weren’t computerized until about 2005, so all the financial records before that were compiled with pencil and paper.

Have to wonder how much more Lobban stole which couldn’t be uncovered? Rumors from several Fate residents say even more money is missing.

We’re trying to find out more about this story!
