Parking worker guilty of coin theft


CINCINNATI — Marc Corsmeier stole $50 in quarters every week from the city of Cincinnati for about eight years.

Now he has to repay the money, but he won’t be using quarters — the city seized $20,000 from his city pension to pay for the theft.

Corsmeier, 56, of Loveland pleaded guilty to theft in office and was placed on probation by Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge John "Skip" West, who also ordered Corsmeier to repay the money.

Suspicion on Corsmeier, who worked in the city’s parking collections office, initially came not from the city but the owner of a convenience-type store Corsmeier frequented.

“He would pay in coins all the time,” Assistant Prosecutor Andy Berghausen said after Monday’s sentencing.
