Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
Today’s bad girl CrimeDiva, Julie Ann Smith, of Jones, OK , was indicted on charges of embezzling one million dollars from PE&E the company she worked as an accounts payable clerk and officer manager. Ms. Smith was responsible for preparing checks and paying invoices for the company. [I need to be blogging for employers to have a check and balance system for those employed in these positions. It seems to me that the temptation for these positions are far too great, and in need for a great deal of oversight!]
The records indicate that Ms. Smith used the company owner’s signature stamp to forge 192 checks, from June of 2002 through June of 2012, [ Wow, that’s ten years of looking over her shoulders, waiting to be caught].
A lot of sites like to say, “If convicted”, but we are going to say when Ms. Smith is convicted, she faces up to 30 years for each bank fraud count, up to 20 years for each mail fraud count, up to 10 years for each forged securities count, up to three years for each false tax return count, and a mandatory two-year prison term under the aggravated identify theft count. [Let’s hope she understand the draw-back of taking this to trial – if you don’t know what I’m talking about . . . read a few of my posts and observe the outcome of those that take their case to trial].
