TOPEKA, Kan. – A Salina woman has been sentenced to 12 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $574,000 in restitution for embezzling from her employer, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Thursday.
Jill Marie Gregg, 41, Salina, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud. In her plea, she admitted that from July 2010 until her termination in November 2011 she embezzled money from her employer, Crane Rental of Salina.
As Crane’s office manager, she had authority to pay the company’s accounts receivable. She used her access to the company’s bank account at Bennington State Bank to pay her personal debts.
Grissom commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Christine Kenney for their work on the case.
