Babysitter charged with stealing

An 18-year-old woman was charged with stealing thousands of dollars from a woman whose children she babysat for between May and August 2012.

Ashley P. Koglin, 231 Willow Drive, Hartland, was charged Feb. 14 in Waukesha CountyCircuit Court with felony theft. She is alleged to have stolen about $2,715 from Angela Proell, 1200 Four Winds Way.

According to the criminal complaint, Proell contacted Hartland police in June 2011 about thefts she believed occurred at her residence. She said she had set aside envelopes for each of her children containing between $350 and $515. The money from the envelopes was missing, she told police, as well as money from her children's rooms. She told police she suspected employees of a cleaning service she used might be involved.

Police were unable to make any progress in the case and eventually suspended theirinvestigation. However, in August 2012 Proell contacted police again and said she had caught Koglin, who baby-sat for Proell, red-handed in the theft of $125 at her residence, according to the complaint.

Koglin told police she had been stealing from Proell for more than a year, the complaint said. Originally it was just small amounts of money and gift cards, but she eventually started taking larger amounts of money, as well as a bottle of alcohol, an iPod and two ivory vests belonging to Proell's daughters, according to the complaint.

If convicted, Koglin could face more than three years in prison and $10,000 in fines.

Koglin's next expected court date is Feb. 25.
