Mercer County Board Chairman Jeff McWhorter is satisfied with the guilty plea of former Mercer County Treasurer Mike Bertelsen. McWhorter says the county will get stolen money back and also Bertelsen out of office.
McWhorter doesn’t agree with conducting a complete forensic audit of county funds, but says some other areas should probably be looked at a little closer.
Bertelsen pled guilty to stealing $13,000 in county 911 funds on Monday. He will be sentenced October 20th.
