A former Ripon College employee accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the school has been bound over for trial. Ronald Haefner waived his preliminary hearing Monday afternoon
on 62 counts including felony and misdemeanor theft. District attorney Eric Toney says Haefner was terminated last November after school officials learned Haefner had allegedly made unauthorized electronics and furniture purchases while he was the school’s IT director. According to the complaint Haefner is accused of making about $270,000 in unauthorized electronics equipment purchases and making approximately $150,000 in unauthorized purchases with a college credit card. Haefner is being held in jail on $250,000 bond.
