Fox Sentenced in District Court

Fox Sentenced in District Court

The former CEO of the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce was sentenced Monday in 4th Judicial District Court in Johnson County. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

In January, following a jury trial in District Court in Buffalo, Angela Fox was convicted of three counts of Felony Theft after being found guilty on all three charges by a jury of her peers. Between 2014 and 2017, Fox made personal purchases totaling over $8,600 with chamber of commerce credit cards while employed at the chamber. Monday, District Court Judge William Edelman sentenced Fox to 2 to 5 years on each count, which will run consecutive to one another, with all but 90 days of count one suspended.

Edelman also sentenced Fox to serve 10 years of supervised probation and ordered her to pay $16,601 in restitution. The cost of the restitution is the $8,600 in theft from the chamber, along with the cost incurred to investigate where the money had been spent by Fox over multiple years. Since the sentence for each of the counts are consecutive, Fox would face between 6 and 15 years in prison if she violates terms of her probation. Prior to issuing the sentence, Judge Edelman made it clear that the sentence handed down by the Court was because of the choices Fox made repeatedly, over an extended period of time, and not because there was a trial.
