State Coordinator's Case Example (Embezzlement)
"A plastic surgeon discovered an embezzlement scheme by his bookkeeper when, during the bookkeeper's vacation, he learned of his overdrawn account. The bookkeeper had attempted to evade detection of the embezzlement by destroying, inter alia, bank records and tax deficiency notices. FinCEN records led us to request all records for the subject's gaming activity from local casinos and we established that the subject had been embezzling for over 5 years to support her gambling habit. Upon our establishing an embezzlement of over $300,000 the subject took a nolo contendre plea and received a sentence of 20 years suspended after 78 months."
