BOSTON – A former employee of a car dealership in Hanover was sentenced today for embezzling $96,920 from her employer.

Susan Morris, 44, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Zobel to four months in prison, to be followed by two years of supervised release and restitution of $96,920. In October 2012, Morris pleaded guilty to wire fraud.

From April 2010 through March 2012, while Morris was working in the accounting department of Dave Delaney’s Buick GMC car dealership, she embezzled $96,920 from the company’s bank account. Morris processed dozens of bogus return transactions, each time fraudulently “returning” the funds to her own debit card.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Steven D. Riccardi, Special Agent in Charge of the Boston office of the U.S. Secret Service, made the announcement today. The case was investigated by the Boston office of the U.S. Secret Service. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy Sternberg of Ortiz’s Economic Crimes Unit.
