Update: New Hampshire Woman Sentenced In $300K Swim & Tennis Club Embezzlement Case
Rebecca McGuire, 52, of Amherst, New Hampshire, has been sentenced to to three concurrent 3 1⁄2-to 7-year terms for embezzling $311,500 from the Jasper Valley Swim and Tennis Club where she had been employed as a volunteer treasurer. A two year investigation revealed that over a nearly ten year period, McGuire had withdrawn cash and written at least 656 fraudulent checks on Jasper Valley's accounts to cash or to herself. According to McGuire's attorney, she has been making arrangements to satisfy the $300,000 restitution order. A separate civil suit by Jasper Valley to recover the loss has reportedly been settled. McGuire who was originally arrested and indicted last November, plead guilty three felony counts of "theft by unauthorized taking" in August 2009.
