Nursing Home Administrator Charged with Embezzlement of Over $235,000 from Facility's Account

A former nursing home administrator has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of embezzlement, money laundering, credit card fraud and identity theft, accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the nursing and rehab center where she was administrator.  Prosecutors said the woman stole the money over a one-year period from the center, a nonprofit organization that received millions of dollars in federal funding.

According to the indictment, the woman embezzled more than $235,000 from the facility's account. In addition, the indictment says that she used a credit card in the name of an employee she had terminated to make thousands of dollars of unauthorized and personal charges.

The former administrator is charged with five counts of stealing from a program receiving federal funds and one count of credit card fraud, which carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 on each count.
In addition, she is charged with four counts of money laundering, which carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 on each count.
She is also charged with one count of aggravated identity theft, which requires a two-year consecutive prison sentence which would be in addition to any of her other sentences. For more, read the story.
