Oklahoma Woman Sentenced In $1 Million Embezzlement Case

Pamela J. Whitson, 59, of Norman, Oklahoma, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for embezzling nearly $1 million from Robert L. Scott Oil & Gas Exploration where she had been employed as office manager.  According to authorities, over a period of six years, from 2002 to 2008, Whitson siphoned funds from the company by executing fraudulent checks for her own benefit.  Media reports suggest that Whitson spent much of the ill-gotten gains at local casinos.  Whitson was also ordered to pay $965,000 in restitution and $252,000 to the IRS on back taxes from the stolen funds.
