ROCHESTER, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Cortney Vogt, 38, of Ontario, NY, who was convicted of two counts of bank fraud was sentenced to 60 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.

Assistant U.S. Attorney John J. Field, who handled the case, stated that Vogt was employed by SalesSource International and ID SignSystems. From September 2013 to April 2017, Vogt abused her position of trust at those businesses and forged checks and embezzled money from them. In total, the defendant stole approximately $167,319.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Kevin P. Lyons.
