Former Oregon Bookkeeper Sentenced In $200+K Embezzlement Scheme
Sonya Marie Kyllo, 39, of Silverton, Oregon, was sentenced to 4 years in prison for embezzling more than $200,000 from Heirloom Roses a local business where she had been employed as assistant bookkeeper. According to prosecutors, Kyllo forged company checks and cashed them for her own benefit over a period of about 1 year. Kyllo, who was arrested on charges of aggravated theft, aggravated identity theft and first-degree forgery last September, also allegedly doctored the company books in an attempt to hide her misappropriations.
