Ex-Walker aide Tim Russell to find out restitution total Thursday

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Former Milwaukee County Walker aide Tim Russell will find out Thursday how much he’ll have to pay back to a veterans’ program he embezzled from.

Russell was sentenced to two years in prison, after he pleaded guilty to stealing thousands of dollars from a program he headed at the County Zoo that saluted Wisconsin veterans.

Earlier, the defense proposed that the 49-year-old Russell pay $22,000 in restitution. But prosecutors rejected the proposal and demanded more.

No one has said how much more.

Russell was appointed to the veterans’ project by Scott Walker, when the governor was the Milwaukee County executive. Russell was also a former chief of staff under Walker.
