Patricia Hart paid son’s tuitionDuring the time Oleson was losing money, Patricia Hart used the stolen funds to pay for her youngest son’s college education. In 2013, bank records show Hart transferring $15,010 to her son’s bank account. Over the next two years, she would transfer another $34,637.99 into his account. The son’s involvement in the case is unclear. As of Tuesday, he was not charged with any crimes in Mason County Superior Court. As well as being Oleson’s bookkeeper, Patricia Hart previously served as a Mason County Fire District Fire District 1 commissioner. The embezzlement is not first that totaled in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, Dorcy said, and is not as rare as you would think.
