Nauman Sentencing

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 25, 2013

ZACHARY WOMAN SENTENCED TO PRISON
FOR DEFRAUDING BAKER BUSINESS


BATON ROUGE, LA - United States Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux, Jr., announced that ANGELIA NAUMAN, age 52, of Zachary, Louisiana, was sentenced today by U.S. District Chief Judge Brian J. Jackson to a term of imprisonment of twenty-seven (27) months.

NAUMAN had previously pled guilty to bank fraud in connection with a multi-year scheme to defraud Industrial Cooling Tower Services, Inc. (“Industrial Cooling”) located in Greenwell Springs, Louisiana. While working as the company’s office manager from 2007 through late 2010, NAUMAN admitted to embezzling $437,941.73. To execute the scheme, the defendant drafted checks payable to herself and forged the signature of company owners. NAUMAN then made false entries into Industrial Cooling’s ledgers that intentionally created the false impression that the checks were for legitimate expenses and payable to legitimate vendors.

At today’s sentencing, the Court found that NAUMAN’s fraudulent scheme caused a loss to Industrial Cooling of $437,941.73 and ordered that she pay this amount in restitution. Following her release from imprisonment, NAUMAN will also be required to serve a two-year term of supervised release.

This investigation was conducted by United States Secret Service Special Agent Kevin Bodden. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Frederick A. Menner, JR.
