Former Scottsdale Office Manager Gets Two Years in Clink for Embezzling More Than $250K From Boss
Attorney General Terry Goddard announced today that a former Scottsdale office manager has been sentenced for embezzling more than $250,000 from her employer, a Scottsdale-based medical practice.
Kacee Sissener, 29, who now lives in San Diego, pleaded guilty to theft and fraudulent schemes and artifices last year she was extradited from California.
According to Goddard's office, as the manager of the office, Sissener had access to the practice's bank accounts, and over an 18-month period, would transfer money from the account into her personal account. She used the money to pay her American Express bill.
Sissener, the AG's Office says, used the dough to buy expensive purses, spa treatments, computers, and vacations for her and her friends.
At first, Sissener would transfer anywhere from $6,000 to $10,000 a month to her account, but the last six transfers were upwards of $16,000 a month.
Ready for the kicker? Sissener's salary to manage a doctor's office was more than $80,000 a year.
Sissener was sentenced to two years in the Maricopa County Jail and ordered to pay $265,196 in restitution to her former employer.
In addition to her upcoming time as a guest of the county, Sissener got seven years' supervised probation, when she must pay $2,500 in monthly restitution to her former employer until her tab is paid off. If she fails to pay, Sissener faces up to 16 years in prison.
