Fremont Woman Sentenced for Mail Fraud
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Marian Korbelik, age 67, of Fremont, Nebraska, was sentenced today to one year and one day imprisonment by the Honorable Laurie Smith Camp, for mail fraud. On October 19, 2015, she pled guilty to the charge in federal district court. Ms. Korbelik was also ordered to serve a three-year term of supervised release upon her release from prison and to pay $64,022.11.00 in restitution.
Korbelik, while living in Nebraska, was the part-time bookkeeper for Piedmont Orthopedic Lab, a company in South Carolina. On numerous occasions from 2006 through 2011 she sent falsified financial reports to the owners of Piedmont. The reports indicated certain amounts had been expended in particular months for legitimate expenses of Piedmont when in fact the expenditures had not been made. Ms. Korbelik wrote checks to herself disguised as legitimate business expenses.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
