Ohio Makes Discovery Request in Wisenbarger Case

The prosecutor for Franklin County, Ohio, is seeking evidence regarding Aaron Wisenbarger’s alleged theft of $1.56 million from Safelite AutoGlass.

The former Safelite accounts payable assistant manager has been indicted on one count of theft, one count of telecommunications fraud and one count of tampering with records, according to local county prosecutor Ron O’Brien. Wisenbarger, 37, has pleaded not guilty and his bail was set at $20,000. He has posted bond.

The state is seeking all lab or hospital reports, books, papers, documents, photographs, tangible objects and more that the defendant plans to use in trial. The prosecutor has also requested results of physical or mental examinations, investigative reports and written or recorded statements from any potential witnesses for the defense.

“It is alleged that between 2006 to 2014, Wisenbarger faked invoices, had checks and many direct deposits into his personal account, and changed records to make it look like legitimate vendors were paid,” according to O’Brien. “Wisenbarger’s bank records show the money going into his account matched the fake invoices.”

In total, it is alleged that Wisenbarger took more than $1.56 million from the company.

“If found guilty on these charges, this former assistant manager faces a potential incarceration of 20 years,” says O’Brien.

    That $1.56 million is $1.56 million more than they paid me over six years combined. Come to think of it, it’s also $1.56 million more than they pay every employee that’s not a vice president, one level higher than a vice president, or Tom Feeney.
