Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves

Woman To Do Prison Sentence

If I had a hall of shame, today’s CrimeDivas would definitely be a candidate. It is human to make a bad decision once, but to repeat that same bad decision that will lead you to prison . . . well, someone is clearly not thinking properly. Also, to add to that she takes her case to the court of appeals after she has admitted her guilt. Okay, I’ll let you come up with your own conclusions.

Today’s CrimeDiva, Kimberly Cray Burk, of Oxford, MS, was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for  embezzlement by wire fraud from 3 companies based in Tennessee and Oklahoma.

According to records, Ms. Burk worked in Mid-South’s payroll department and from 2008 through 2011 she committed fraud through Paychex, Inc., where she wired $1.4 million to her and relatives bank accounts.

Ms. Burk after pleading guilty took her case to the Court of Appeals, because she thought the eight years were too harsh and exceeded the federal guidelines for the kind of case she had. Well, the Court of Appeals shook their fingers at her, and said no, because she had prior convictions for similar crimes and was on bond waiting sentencing on an earlier fraud case when the case before them had been going on. She, in my opinion, is lucky they didn’t give her more time, and just think about the money she wasted trying to get the sentenced reduced.  I’m sure the attorneys she retained were happy to take her money all the while knowing it was a no winner.

Those of you that follow this blog know I try to stay neutral, but cases like this really take me there!
