Former Office Manager Charged With Embezzling $200,000
An information was filed in U.S. District Court today charging the former office manager of a Cleveland law firm with embezzling approximately $200,000 from the firm, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Kelly R. Logan, age 42, of Seven Hills, Ohio, is charged in the one-count information. The information alleges that from February 2002 to November 2013, Logan forged approximately 111 checks drawn on accounts maintained by the law firm, and made them payable to her. In addition, Logan made false entries in the books of the law firm to conceal her embezzlement.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after consideration of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines which depend upon a number of factors unique to each case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the unique characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Ann C. Rowland following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
