Butler County Woman Sentenced to Prison, Ordered to Pay Restitution for Embezzling from Health Care Provider
PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A Butler County resident has been sentenced to 15 months incarceration, and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $66,443.50, in federal court on her conviction of embezzlement in connection with health care, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.
United States District Judge Arthur J. Schwab imposed the sentence on Jennine M. Prince, 42, of Valencia, Pa.
According to the information presented to the court, Prince committed this offense while she was on pretrial release in another embezzlement case against her. That case involved her embezzling approximately $500,000 from Ironworkers Local 3. She was hired by Office Based Anesthesia Solutions, Inc. (OBAS) in Cranberry, Pa., in May 2010 and worked there until Sept. 29, 2011, when her thefts were discovered. During her employment at OBAS, she was responsible for making bank deposits of cash of co-payments received from patients. She pocketed some of the cash every day that she worked.
Assistant United States Attorney Nelson P. Cohen prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
U.S. Attorney Hickton commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Jennine M. Prince.
