Former New Day CEO Sentenced

Former New Day Products CEO Nancy John was sentenced in Bannock County court Monday after being found guilty of felony embezzlement from the local business that helps the disabled.

Judge Stephen Dunn sentenced John to 10 years of probation, with the possibility of two years fixed and three years indeterminate if she violates that probation.

John will spend 10 days in jail, serving those dates on weekends so that she can work to pay her restitution. That has been preliminarily set at $20,000, and John isn’t done in court quite yet.

New Day Products is pursuing an extended restitution trial, and John may have to pay back even more money. Current New Day CEO Terry Fredrickson said this takes a step toward giving the company and its employees closure.

“What kind of a price tag can you put on what she did? How do you put a price tag on that? And I don’t know if you can. I mean, it’s just such a horrible situation all the way around. I think Judge Dunn said it best, ‘You know, you don’t steal, but you especially don’t steal from people that are with a disability,'” Fredrickson said.

Dunn denied John’s request for a withheld judgement.

New Day Products is a nonprofit, community therapy program that employs disabled adults.
