Woman Sentenced For Embezzling More Than $166K From Minnesota Real Estate Concern

Kathleen Cicmil, 56, formerly of Hibbing, Minnesota and currently of Palm Desert, California, has been sentenced to 21 months in state prison for embezzling $166,219.12 from Perrella and Associates, a real estate and appraisal service where she had been employed as a bookkeeper.  According to authorities, over a period of four years, from 2005 to 2009, Cicmil siphoned funds from the company.  Nevertheless, she is believed to have embezzled more than $300,000 from the firm from between 1998 and 2009, but the statute of limitations did not allow for the entire loss to be included.  Cicmil had been employed by the firm for 18 years.   She was also ordered to pay restitution.  Cicmil was originally charged in December 2009 and plead guilty last month to one count of theft by swindle.

We should learn from other people's mistakes and do what's right in earning a decent living. Avoid imprisonment and have a clean record by following the law.

It is great that justice has been served to some people who have committed fraudulent acts. Hopefully, those who are involved in similar activities will be discouraged.

Maybe some fact should be checked out before we as the people pass judgment.
