NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A woman who served as chief financial officer of a Metairie nonprofit company has been sentenced to two years in prison for embezzling nearly $250,000 from her former employer and another company official.
U.S. Attorney Jim Letten's office Wednesday said U.S. District Judge Martin L.C. Feldman also ordered 38-year-old Kelley Williams, of Terrytown, to pay $245,386 in restitution and to serve three years of supervised release following her prison term.
Williams' former employer isn't disclosed in court records, but it provides personal care attendants, transportation, education and training to people with developmental disabilities.
Federal prosecutors say Williams forged the name of the nonprofit's president on checks she made payable to herself and deposited into her personal bank accounts. They say she tried to disguise the payments using computer accounting software.
