CLEAR LAKE – A Mason City woman accused of embezzling tens-of-thousands of dollars from Lake Chevy claims she is innocent of the felony charges against her.

Back on October 28, after an investigation, Clear Lake police charged Amy Monahan, age 42, from Mason City with Ongoing Criminal Conduct, a Class B Felony; 1st Degree Theft, a Class C Felony, and Forgery, a Class D Felony. She was jailed that day.

The charges concluded a seven month investigation into reports of misconduct by Monahan while she was employed at Lake Chevrolet, in Clear Lake, from 2013 through 2016. During the course of the investigation, it was determined Monahan misappropriated over $50,000 in funds during a two year period of her employment.

While employed as officer manager, Monahan was responsible for employee payroll, employee benefits, accounts payable, accounts receivable, reconciliation of accounts and monthly financial reports.

Monahan is alleged to have: taken money, received extra employee benefits, used business funds to pay on personal credit cards, and forged checks all without permission or knowledge of Lake Chevrolet.

On October 31, Monahan posted the required $4,000 cash bond and was released from jail. She hired local attorney Joel Yunek to represent her. On December 19, she and Yunek entered a not-guilty plea. A jury trial was scheduled for March 7. A pre-trial conference where a possible plea deal could be worked out is scheduled for February 21.

    I would hope that the judge would impose the maximum on this woman. She’s never going to change. Her and her husband are both pathological liars and thieves.
    They both need to start actually working for a living instead of ripping people off and judging others and walking around with their noses in the air. Shame on them.
    I hope justice serves them both.

    THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM….Apparently this is not her 1st time doing this. A firm in Mason City caught her doing the same thing to them. The firm agreed to a gag order and not to prosecute if she paid them back. AND so apparently this lady was was taking money up to 7 different ways from this car dealership. She truly knew what she was doing, but will never see a day in jail since this is considered her 1st offense….life gets to go on for her

    Why didn’t someone tell him to shut up at the meet? Usually a big mouth like that is just a big pussy inside. Next time tell him to shut up or get out on the mat and see how bad he is. Most likely hes talking out of his ass cause his mouth knows better.

    Plea bargain is a sure sign of guilt.

    White color crimes/she is still white lazy trash. She is a thief and a lier! She is looking for a plea agreement. As far as her family, remember that the apple never falls far from the tree! Is she is white trash so is her family! Maybe not all of them but she has cast a doubt on the family. Pay the money back!

      You are the very definition of the ugly american practicing guilt by association. And I will guess you don’t have clue one that you know what you are talking about.

          I guess cussing using the F word about how horrible your son wrestles when he loses to any person that will listen and those that don’t wish too makes you a great dad. ?? Hmmm not in my book. I fear for his wife and children when no one is watching. If he is that arrogant and nasty in public, what must it be like behind closed doors? I agree with KW. No further introductions required.

    She is looking for a plea bargain and will probably get it. They never get much for white collar theft.
