Former Nebraska Restaurant Manager Sentenced For Embezzling $154K

Cynthia J. Jameson, 42, of Bellevue, Nebraska, was sentenced to one year and a day in prison for embezzling $154,081.72 from Joe Tess Place, a local seafood restaurant, where she had been employed as office manager for 23 years. According to prosecutors, from March 2006 through March 2007, Jameson wrote checks from the company’s account to pay her personal credit card bills. She allegedly attempted to cover up the thefts by falsifying ledger entries. Jameson, who was also ordered to pay full restitution, reportedly blamed her actions in part on a gambling habit. She was originally charged with two counts of mail fraud last May.
