OCONOMOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - An apparent computer glitch resulted in a worker at Stein Garden Center in the City of Oconomowoc getting 10 times the pay she was owed.

Forty-seven year old Lynda G. Johnson was paid at a rate of $88.25 an hour, instead of the $8.25 she was supposed to get.

She was overpaid by $10,000.

The company discovered the error about a month after Johnson quit last May.

When contacted, she first said she didn’t know anything about the money.

Later, she told a Waukesha County Sheriff’s detective she thought the money had come from her aunt and she had already spent it on a new roof for her home.

She said she had no intention of repaying it, saying it was the company’s mistake – not hers.

Johnson has been charged. 

If convicted, could spend up to six years in prison.

Johnson returns to court March 25th
