Former Chief Financial Officer Pleads Guilty to Embezzling Money from Two Area Businesses

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Ohio

DAYTON – Sandy Green, of Fairborn, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to wire fraud as part of a scheme to defraud her previous employers.

Benjamin C. Glassman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, and Yvonne A. DiCristoforo, Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Secret Service, announced the plea entered into before U.S. District Judge Walter H. Rice.

According to court documents, Green was a bookkeeper at a Dayton business from May to November 2017. Green made fraudulent credit card returns without a corresponding legitimate purchase, causing company money to be paid into personal bank accounts belonging to Green and her family members.

Additionally, from April 2017 until March 2018, Green was the Chief Financial Officer for a second victim business in the Dayton area. Green again defrauded the company, this time transferring money from the business’s credit union into bank accounts controlled by Green and her family members. She attempted to disguise receiving the money by falsely listing other individuals and entities as the payee.

In total, Green embezzled more than $150,000 from the two companies.

Green pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud, which are each punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

U.S. Attorney Glassman commended the investigation of this case by the Secret Service and Assistant United States Attorneys Andrew J. Hunt and SaMee Harden, who are representing the United States in this case.
