Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
A woman from Dummerston, was charged and sentenced for selling jewelry from her employee’s business and keeping the money for herself. The crime occurred through eBay internet sales where the fund transactions were directed to the woman. This is where the federal charges came into play. This is not a big money case, under $20,000, but it is a white-collar crime, which make her a Crime Divas. With time this money crime could have mounted into the tens of thousands of dollars, or more.
Andrea Carrasquillo, 33, was sentenced in U.S. District Court Monday to serve three years probation, pay nearly $20,000 in restitution and serve four months of home confinement, after pleading guilty to wire fraud. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Burlington, Carrasquillo sold jewelry from her employer, Sajen Jewelry, and kept the profit for herself. Officials said she sold 337 pieces of Sajen jewelry and kept $17,198 from the sales. Sajen Jewelry online customers told the business about the eBay operation, according to a news release. Carrasquillo was ordered to repay $19,566 in restitution by Judge William K. Sessions III
Thought: Please think about the big picture and don’t commit a crime. To shed light on what I’m talking about (bigger picture). This woman has lost her job, now has a criminal record, which is going to make it difficult to obtain a future job, has to pay the money back, do required home confinement and probation, has caused disgrace to herself and family, a lost of trust and has put the owner in the shop in a position where her business maybe in questioned to buyers. Remember it’s not all about you.
