Kentucky Woman Sentenced In $200+K Embezzlement Case

Michelle L. Simmons, 34, of Glasgow, Kentucky, was sentenced to one year and a day in prison for embezzling some $217,000 from Bealand Campbellsville, Inc., where she had been employed as an office manager. In her guilty plea, Simmons admitted that she embezzled the funds between July 2004 and January 2008. She was also ordered to pay $217,549 in restitution. Prosecutors alleged that Simmons, who had control over the company's payroll and bill paying functions, "caused checks to be written to herself" and other funds wire transferred to her own accounts from the company's credit card accounts. She had been indicted on one count of wire fraud last January.
