A state court has rejected an appeal from the former Eau Claire County treasurer found guilty of stealing taxpayer money.

Larry Lokken was asking the appeals court to overturn his sentence of nine-and-a-half years. The judges did say the county court should reconsider the sentence of an extra five years in prison if Lokken can't repay the 625-thousand dollars he took quickly enough.
