Former Bookkeeper In Louisiana Pleads Guilty To Embezzling $217K From Insurance Concern

From The Advocate on 5/23/13:

A former bookkeeper for a Baton Rouge firm was sentenced Wednesday to 30 months in federal prison after admitting she stole $217,347 from her employer and an insurance company.

Cynthia D. Windham, 49, pleaded guilty to one count of bank fraud after telling Chief U.S. District Judge Brian A. Jackson she altered 190 checks that belonged to Strategic Case Management LLC, her employer from December 2000 until August 2009. She then deposited those checks into her personal account.


Jackson ordered Windham to report to federal prison by 2 p.m. June 24. The judge also ordered Windham to pay restitution of $192,347 to Strategic Case Management and $25,000 to another firm, America First Insurance Co.
