Kansas Woman Sentenced In $130K Embezzlement Scheme

Khristi L. Anderson, 45, of Leavenworth, Kansas, was sentenced recently to six months in prison for embezzling $130,086 from the Pin Oak Apartments, a local federally subsidized residential facility where she had served as manager. Anderson pleaded guilty last year to one count of making false statements to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. According to authorities, over a period of at least two years, from 2004 through 2006, Anderson deposited rent payments into a petty cash account and then would issue a check to herself or her cleaning company. She cashed these checks and spent the money to support a gambling habit, according to the plea agreement.
