Massachusetts Woman Sentenced For Embezzling $240K From Rhode Island Company

Sherrie Gagne, 41, of Seekonk, Massachusetts, was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison for embezzling nearly $240,000 from Cranston, Rhode Island-based 4 Seasons Carpet Workshop Inc., where she had been employed as office manager. Prosecutors alleged that from September 2005 until January 2007, Gagne issued 91 checks to herself totaling $237,363 for her own personal benefit. She had pleaded no contest to one count of embezzlement over $100, one count of uttering and publishing a false instrument -- forging and counterfeiting checks -- and one count of obstruction of justice. As part of the sentence, Gagne must also make full restitution and will have 6 1/2 years of probation following her prison term.
