BALTIMORE, Maryland - United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein announces that today U.S. District Judge Andre M. Davis sentenced Roberta A. Moore, age 38, of Baltimore to 2 years in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release for wire fraud. Judge Davis also ordered Moore to pay over $317,000 in restitution.
According to the statement of facts presented at her guilty plea, Roberta A. Moore worked for Aether Systems, Incorporated in the Accounts Payable Department as Accounts Payable Administrator between January 15, 2001 and June 4, 2002. Moore deposited numerous checks from Aether Systems into her Provident Bank account, which she opened under an alias. An internal audit revealed that approximately $270,000 had been stolen from Aether Systems between January 2001 and September 2002 in this manner. Most of the money was withdrawn by Moore via checks payable to Roberta A. Moore or another individual. Checks were also written to pay for a Lexus ES 300 purchased by Roberta A. Moore on September 27, 2000.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Federal Bureau of Investigation for its investigative work in this case. Mr. Rosenstein also praised Assistant United States Attorney Bonnie S. Greenberg, who prosecuted the case.
