Accountant Sentenced in $800K CU Embezzlement
A former accounting assistant at the $104 million Pinal County Federal Credit Union in Casa Grande, Ariz. was sentenced to one year in prison and ordered to repay part of the almost $800,000 she confessed to stealing. The U.S. District Court of Arizona ordered Jennelle Rena Curtis to pay $555,571 in restitution and $200 in court assessment fees.
As part of a plea agreement, Curtis pleaded guilty to a two -count criminal information charging her with embezzlement. A criminal information is often filed when a suspect cooperates with prosecutors, intends to plead guilty or provides information that leads to additional arrests.
