Illinois Woman Sentenced For Embezzling $921K From Doctor's Office

Flora Buckingham, 70, of Granite City, Illinois, has been sentenced to 28 months in prison for embezzling some $921,000 from Ahmad and Rana Pediatrics, Ltd., where she had been employed as an office manager.  Prosecutors alleged that over a six and a half year period, from May 2004 to November 2010, Buckingham wrote numerous checks from the healthcare concern to pay personal bills and otherwise for her own benefit.  She has also been ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $921,041.  Buckingham had plead guilty last September to one count of mail fraud.
