Mansfield woman indicted for stealing $339,000 from her employer

A grand jury returned an indictment charging Yatkia Wallace, 42, of Mansfield, with one count of embezzlement in connection with health care, said Carole S. Rendon, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, and Stephen D. Anthony, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Cleveland Office.

The indictment alleges that Wallace embezzled $339,198 from her former employer, D & I Associates and converted it for her own personal use. 

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the dourt after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense, and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases, the sentences will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases they will be less than the maximum. 

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Carmen E. Henderson following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
