Russell ordered to pay $26,000+ in restitution
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A Milwaukee County judge ordered Timothy Russell on Friday, April 26th to pay $26,613.04 in restitution.
Russell is a former aide of Gov. Scott Walker. He was sentenced in January to two years in prison plus another five years of extended supervision on two felonies. He was also convicted on a misdemeanor for stealing at least $21,000 from a nonprofit group Walker asked him to lead — and stealing money from two County Board candidates’ campaigns. It’s money Russell allegedly used for personal trips and more.
Russell is one of several former Milwaukee County workers charged and sentenced as a result of a John Doe probe into County workers working on political campaigns while on County time.
