ELMHURST — An Elmhurst bookkeeper was sentenced Wednesday to 5 years in prison for embezzling about $127,000 from a dental office in 2004 and 2005.
Patricia Gaffney, 54, who was convicted by a jury in April of theft of more than $10,000, continued Wednesday to maintain her innocence, blaming her attorneys, the judge’s evidential rulings, the company’s dentists and their office staff. But she admitted having financialproblems.
Assistant State’s Atty. Ken Tatarelis said Gaffney had confessed to Elmhurst police in a 22-page statement but later recanted about depositing checks from Advanced Oral & Maxillofacial.
