Georgia Woman Sentenced For Embezzling $350K

Clara June Allen, 40, of Clarkesville, Georgia, was sentenced today to 30 years, with only 3 years served in prison followed by 2 years of house arrest, for embezzling more than $350,000 from Mencom Corporation where she had been employed as a bookkeeper. According to authorities, Allen's thefts spanned about a four and a half year period, from October 2003 until March 2008, whereby she wrote checks from company coffers to a company co-owned by she and her husband called D&J Contracting. Allen's husband, Dale Allen, has also been charged with theft by taking in this case which has yet to be resolved. Clara June Allen, who was originally indicted in December 2009, is also alleged to have paid her personal credit card bills online with company funds and to have inflated her time cards in order to receive pay to which she was not entitled.
