Former Bookkeeper From Upstate New York Begins Prison Sentence For $750K Embezzlement From Veterinary Hospital
Deborah L. Newton, 49, of Hamburg, New York, began her 1-3 year prison sentence yesterday for embezzling some $750,000 from a local veterinary hospital where she had been employed as a bookkeeper. Newton pleaded guilty to second-degree grand larceny last November and agreed to pay restitution. She had resigned a year ago after reportedly admitting to the thefts when she was confronted by veterinary staff about bank account irregularities. She had been employed there for more than two decades. Newton has reportedly repaid $150,000 out of the $750,000 she owes in restitution.
