BOZEMAN — A 61-year-old Bozeman businessman has been sentenced to five years on probation and ordered to repay just over $74,000 for failing to deposit money into an employee benefit plan.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says Steven C. Munson pleaded guilty in November to theft from an employee benefit plan and was sentenced last month by U.S. District Judge Sam Haddon.
Prosecutors say Munson owned DDCS Express Inc., which operated mail routes under contract with the U.S. Postal Service.
The company's employee benefit plan received fringe benefit contributions from the Postal Service contracts and voluntary contributions from employees through salary deductions.
After an employee complaint in July 2010, an investigation found Munson didn't make any plan deposits from January 2007 through June 2010 and failed to pay his employees all of the fringe benefits due them.
