Man guilty of stealing debit card from sister

A 25-year-old Beaver Dam man was found guilty Wednesday of using his sister’s debit card to make purchases without her permission.

Joshua Yungen entered a no contest plea to one count of felony misappropriate ID information to obtain money before Judge Steven Bauer. Three additional counts of felony misappropriate ID information to obtain money and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia were dismissed but were read into the court record.

Bauer gave Yungen a withheld sentence of 30 months of probation. He must maintain absolute sobriety and attend drug and alcohol counseling. He also must submit to drug testing.

Yungen had previously pleaded no contest to two counts of identity theft and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia but Bauer rejected the plea agreement and Yungen then withdrew his plea.

On Feb. 26, officers responded to a theft report. The complainant said that her brother, identified as Yungen, has used her debit card on two separate occasions without her permission. She said he used her card on Feb. 19 and 25.

The complainant said Yungen had stolen from her previously but she didn’t report it. Yungen was stopped by officers and admitted to making two separate withdrawals from an ATM using his sister’s debit card. He also admitted to using the card to purchase an online video game and a Google purchase.
