Redding Woman Sentenced to Prison for Stealing More Than $400K from Employer

Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that that LISA LANDMAN, 48, of Redding, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Victor A. Bolden in Bridgeport to three months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for embezzling more than $400,000 from her employer. Judge Bolden also ordered LANDMAN to serve the first six months of her supervised release in home confinement.

According to court documents and statements made in court, LANDMAN was the bookkeeper for a Connecticut company. Between November 2010 and November 2013, LANDMAN defrauded her employer by authorizing and initiating at least 33 wire transfers from the company’s business bank account into her own personal credit card account. In total, LANDMAN transferred $410,410.02. from the company’s account to her personal credit card account and used the funds for personal purchases including jewelry, clothing, vacations, spa treatments, fitness equipment and entertainment tickets.

On September 19, 2016, LANDMAN pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud.

This matter was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service, the Stamford Police Department and the Connecticut Financial Crimes Task Force. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy V. Gifford.
