Virginia Woman Sentenced In $782K Embezzlement Case

Charlotte M. Scott, 47, was sentenced to five years in prison for embezzling $782,600 from Virginia Commonwealth University Health System where she had been employed as a grants specialist. Scott, who was indicted in May 2008, pleaded guilty last December to seven felony counts of embezzlement for using institution funds to purchase transit tickets at a discount and reselling them, pocketing the difference. Scott was actually sentenced to 70 years, with all but 5 suspended.
