Webb sentenced for theft charge in Illinois, Bemidji charges await

The former executive director of the Sanford Center, Curtis Webb, was given a community service sentence for theft of government funds in Bloomington, Ill.

According to an article by the local newspaper, the Pantagraph, Webb was sentenced last Monday to 24 months of conditional discharge, or two years probation, as well as 100 hours of community service, after a jury last August found him guilty of stealing from what was then known as the U.S. Cellular Coliseum, owned by the city of Bloomington.

Webb is facing similar charges in Bemidji, as Beltrami County Attorney David Hanson announced a charge of theft by swindle in August.

Webb left the Sanford Center to work for the U.S. Cellular Coliseum, where he worked from June 2016 until he was fired in October of the same year.

No court date for Webb for his alleged crimes in Bemidji has yet been announced.
