Mercer County Treasurer Mike Bertelsen’s guilty plea to theft and official misconduct charges does not include restitution for the salary he drew over the last year while not working. Special Prosecutor Michael Vujovich says that’s something beyond his control.


Yesterday’s plea also occurred without the benefit of a complete forensic audit of county funds, but Vujovich says that’s up to the county board if they want to pursue that.


Bertelsen was in his fifth term–first being elected in 1994. He’ll be sentenced on October 20th.
