Corporate Employee Sentenced For Embezzlement And Tax Fraud

PHILADELPHIA - Sheila Kaye Jameson, 55, of Blandon, PA, was sentenced today to 48 months in prison for embezzlement and tax fraud. In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence Stengel ordered restitution in the amount of $1,864,024 to EnerSys and its insurer, and taxes owed to the IRS in the amount of $256,447 (excluding penalties and interest), and three years of supervised release three years. She must report to the Bureau of Prisons on March 11, 2013.

Jameson was a Logistics Analyst for EnerSys Corporation in Reading, Pennsylania, when she embezzled approximately $1.8 million dollars from EnerSys Corporation by using a shell corporation, Aries Consulting Group. She created Aries Consulting for the purpose of sending bogus invoices to EnerSys, requesting payment which Aries Consulting Group was not entitled to receive. Jameson also failed to include any of the embezzled income on federal income tax returns that she filed with the Internal Revenue Service. She pleaded guilty to mail fraud and filing false tax returns.

The case was investigated by the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Floyd J. Miller.
