Connecticut Woman Sentenced in $200K Payroll Embezzlement Scheme

Lisa E. Bloomer, 50, of Plainfield, Connecticut, was sentenced to 2 years in prison for bilking the state out of some $207,000 in compensation, where she had been employed with the Connecticut Department of Developmental Services. According to authorities, Bloomer forged payroll hours for time she was actually gambling at casinos. Bloomer's scheme spanned a three year period between 2005 and 2007. Bloomer pleaded no contest to the charge of first-degree larceny. Bloomer's gambling addiction was reportedly ignited by her boss, Alisa M. Bobinski, 55, of Colchester, Connecticut, who brought her to the casinos to gamble regularly. Bobinski has also been arrested and is awaiting trial.
