Connecticut Woman Sentenced for Stealing Over $250,000 From Her Employer

BOSTON – A Windsor, Conn. woman was sentenced today in federal court in Springfield, Mass., for stealing over $250,000 from her employer. 

Angela M. Craig, 55, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mark G. Mastroianni to 21 months in prison, three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay approximately $254,000 in restitution, after pleading guilty to one count of wire fraud in March 2017.

From July 2012 through May 2014, Craig stole more than $250,000 from her Massachusetts employer by writing company checks to herself, forging her employer’s signature and then cashing or depositing the checks.  Craig concealed her theft by entering false invoices in her employer’s accounting system and by failing to pay company bills and taxes. 

Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb and Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Deepika Bains Shukla of Weinreb’s Springfield Branch Office prosecuted the case.
