My 2 ex sister in laws are going to court
for taking $1,000,000. from employer. The older sister worked for the company until last Feb. 2015 when the company did an audit and found the embezzlement and she was fired. She admitted to the owners that she had being taking money for over 7 years (prob. longer). She set up a fake company with her husband and paid herself as if she was a vendor.
She gave her sister about $300,000. of the million. Her sister was laid off in 2010. There are 2 forensic audits going on. She said gambling and greed were the reasons for taking the money. The home they owned in modesto went into foreclosure. Their home where they are currently living is in Lake Tahoe. I would imagine they will stay there until forced out.
Her husband says he didn't know anything. Hard to believe. After she got fired (the owner's hadn't gone to the d.a. yet,), Debi and her husband went and paid cash for a mobile home in Tower Park Marina. Her boss found out about it and made her give him the keys. The ended up getting the place sold and the business owner got that money. It was $245,000. After that happened he (the boss) went to police and Debi was arrested and let out on her o.r. Her sister also was o.r'd.
Lots of tax is going to be owed to IRS and the FTB. There next court date is a preliminary hearing setting and further arraignment. Because they admitted their guilt they have no defense so there will be no trial
I was just wondering when they might be sentenced? And for how long? Her husband took and early retirement because the business he was in charge of (trucking company) went bankrupt (his company also had a "break in" and all computers
were taken with all financial and business information). He had to "remember" the years financial to do the company tax return.) My guess is he was stealing from the trucking company also and that why they went bankrupt.
Will they (the forensic accounting firms) look into his 'business' also? I can't believe the 2 sisters did what they did. They are good cons for sure. I hope they throw the book at them. They owned a Rolls Royce Harley Davidson 40' Rv, travel trailer, 2 boats, Mercedes, jeep, Denali, 2 mopeds, bikes, '52 Buick that had been restored to the original condition. They both paid for their kids rent every month and gave them all gas cards and medical insurance!
If they are suspicious about Deb's husband when will they charge him before they go to court or will that be a separate issue and something they weren't looking for? Or would they 'surprise' him in court with charges.?
On top of all this, the company had been paying employees under the table.
I know I'm going on and on but I hope her husband is charged, and haven't heard any remorse from them at all. Makes me sick. Any idea on if they will be doing (the sisters) any time in prison and how long can they get?
