A Covington woman who previously admitted that she embezzled almost $190,000 from a Metairie dentist’s office where she worked has been sentenced to serve one year and six months in federal prison, and ordered to pay back the money she stole from the company. Kelly Muller pleaded guilty in February to one count of embezzlement of health care funds.
Court records show U.S. District Judge Stanwood R. Duval sentenced Muller last week. In addition to prison time and restitution, Muller will be placed on three years supervised release once she’s released from prison, court records show.
Muller must pay $189,588 in restitution to Oral Surgery Limited in Metairie.
According to a bill of information filed in U.S. District Court in New Orleans last year, Muller worked as an office manager and bookkeeper at the Metairie dentist’s office. She is accused of embezzling the money between 2008 and 2010.
Muller must report to prison by noon on Jan. 2.
