Former Texas Bookkeeper Sentenced For Misappropriating $427K

Bethie Annette Horn, 48, of Mineola, Texas was sentenced yesterday to 21 months in federal prison for misappropriating more than $427,000 from Donovan White Cabinets where she had been employed as a bookkeeper. Horn, who was originally indicted last October and pleaded guilty to bank fraud charges last December, forged checks issued on the company's Capital One Bank account and then deposited them into her personal bank account. The scheme lasted two years between April 2006 to April 2008. Horn must also pay full restitution in the amount of $427,023.68. Horn blamed her actions in part on health problems.
