Maryland Woman Gets Probation As Accomplice in Embezzlement Case

Teresa Ann White, 42 of Annapolis, Maryland, was sentenced to 36 months probation recently for serving as an accomplice in an embezzlement scheme that bilked at least $195,000 from the S Storage Company in Washington, DC. An unnamed co-conspirator, who was in charge of much of the accounting functions at the company, issued at 9 unauthorized checks totalling $195,862.73 which White deposited in a special account she had set up and then the two shared the ill-gotten proceeds, according to prosecutors.

Presumably the co-conspirator, who was the employee and issued the actual fraudulent checks, will get actual jail time.
