Alaska Man Sentenced For Role In $500K Embezzlement Scheme From Seafood Company

From the Seattle Times on 6/7/13:

A Kodiak man will serve 28 months in a federal prison for taking part in a scheme to embezzle nearly $500,000 from the Trident Seafoods plant in Kodiak.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports ( 31-year-old Jeremy Smith was sentenced in U.S. District Court this week for two counts of wire fraud.

The missing funds were discovered shortly after 32-year-old Isairis Wolfe was fired as the plant's bookkeeper in 2010.

Federal authorities allege she wrote 52 checks over a 2 1/2 year period to four people and one of their underage sons.

Also indicted were Anne Wilson, who is also known as Anne Sorio, of Kent, Wash.; Valerie Olivares, of Corpus Christi, Texas, and Jamie Fathke of Kodiak.

All have been given prison terms except Wolfe, who will be sentenced Tuesday.
