Missouri’s Sandra J. Martin accused of embezzling more than $25k


A Nixa woman accused of stealing more than $25,000 from her former employer over a two-year period was bound over to Christian County Circuit Court May 21 and scheduled for a June 6 arraignment.

Sandra J. Martin, 42, will appear in front of Judge Mark Orr on one count of a class B felony for stealing from her dentist employer. She was originally slated for a bench trial May 21 in Christian County Associate Court, but instead waived her preliminary hearing and was bound over to circuit court.

Martin was arrested Dec. 19, 2007, after her employer, Nixa dentist Michael Butterfield, DDS, discovered a declined charge on an office credit charge that had a $50,000 credit line, according to court documents.

The probable cause statement filed with Cleek’s complaint said Martin had also written more than $25,000 in checks from two different bank accounts belonging to Butterfield.

If convicted, Martin could receive five to 15 years in prison.
