Former Municipal Finance Official In Connecticut To Be Sentenced Today For Embezzling Nearly $500K

From the Associated Press on 1/30/14:

A former Shelton official is facing sentencing for stealing nearly $500,000 in city funds over several years. 
Sharon Scanlon is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday in Milford Superior Court. The Connecticut Post reports that she faces up to seven years in prison under a plea bargain deal, but her lawyer can argue for as little as three years behind bars. 
Prosecutors say Scanlon stole the money while serving as Shelton’s assistant finance director, a position she held for 17 years. 
Authorities say she made fraudulent deposits of city money into two personal bank accounts from 2001 to 2012. 
Scanlon pleaded no contest to felony larceny and forgery charges in October. She also has forfeited her retirement funds.

She actually stole over 900k over 10 years. She bought trucks, campers and house remodelling. All this and her husband had no idea of her wrong doing. If she did not get caught, she would still be living the high life and so would her stupid husband
