Dickinson County Woman Sentenced For Embezzling From Credit Union
TOPEKA, KAN. – A Dickinson County women has been sentenced to 36 months in federal prison for embezzling from a credit union where she worked, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today. She also was ordered to pay $817,000 in restitution.
Pamela Emig, 48, Solomon, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement. In her plea, she admitted that from 2005 to 2011 she embezzled $817,000 while she was working for Enterprise Credit at 201 Factory in Enterprise, Kan.
Emig admitted she kited checks between accounts under her control at the credit union to cover up embezzlements and increasingly larger shortages. She would make a large deposit toward the end of the month and include the deposit in the general ledger, but the actual deposit would not be sent to the corporate checking account until the middle of the next month. At that time another larger check would be drafted out of another account at the credit union.
Grissom commended the FBI, Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Hathaway and Assistant U.S. Attorney Christine Kenney for their work on the case.
