Ex-employee gets prison for stealing $300,000 from Utica dentist

A longtime office manager for Dr. Louis Rabice was sentenced to prison Tuesday for stealing $300,000 from the Utica dentist.

Mary Frank, 57, of Rome, received 1 to 3 years in prison for her guilty plea in Oneida County Court to second-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree criminal tax fraud.
As Frank appeared in court this week, she had already paid back the full amount of money she admitted stealing from the dentist’s office over a period of six or seven years. The money would be embezzled on a regular basis as Frank processed cash payments from patients.

Frank – who had worked for Rabice for 23 years – also agreed to pay more than $33,000 in state taxes that she never paid on the stolen money that would have been considered additional income.

“She ran into some tough times and had to pay some bills,” Frank’s attorney Frank Mellace later explained outside the courtroom. “She made some wrong decisions and she took some money that didn’t belong to her, unfortunately.”

In court, neither Frank nor Mellace offered any final words on the matter.

“I’m sure you’ve learned your lesson from this,” Judge Michael L. Dwyer told Frank, who replied yes.

Although Frank paid back the $300,000, Mellace said Frank had doubts she actually took that much money. Instead, she believes other employees were also taking advantage of the office’s accounting measures.

But investigators found no evidence that anyone other than Frank was stealing from Rabice, Assistant District Attorney Bernard Hyman said. This is a “classic case,” Hyman said, of what can happen when business owners place too much trust and authority in one employee without much oversight.

“Dr. Rabice was quite disappointed and would never have believed it was this particular person,” Hyman said.

Pennsylvania office manager sentenced to 41 months for fraud — stole $475k

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 1, 2012

PITTSBURGH, Pa. – A resident of Allegheny County, Pa., has been sentenced in federal court to 41 months in prison and restitution in the amount of $386,247 on her conviction of health care fraud, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

United States District Judge Cathy Bissoon imposed the sentence on Jill E. D’Angelo, 45.

According to information presented to the court, D’Angelo was the office manager of the dental offices located on Old Clairton Road in Pittsburgh, Pa. D’Angelo collected and deposited cash co-payments from patients, billed insurers, and reconciled billings and payments. During the course of the scheme from May 2003 to May 2010, she embezzled cash co-payments totaling $168,335.41. She also used a computer program that sent invoices directly to insurance companies. D’Angelo inputted a large number of dental services that were not rendered by the dental offices thereby causing the insurance companies to pay for services not rendered. The insurance companies in turn sent checks to the dental office as payment for these never rendered services. D’Angelo intercepted the insurance company’s payments, forged the dentist’s name and deposited the fraudulent proceeds into her personal account. This part of the embezzlement totaled $306,703.72. The total amount embezzled by D’Angelo was approximately $475,039.13.

Prior to imposing sentence, Judge Bissoon stated that due to the large sums of money embezzled and the betrayal of trust a 41-month sentence is necessary and appropriate.

Assistant United States Attorney Nelson P. Cohen prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

U.S. Attorney Hickton commended the United States Postal Inspection Service for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of D’Angelo.

Quincy MA woman pleads guilty to embezzling $378k — sentenced to 46 months in prison

Phuong “Lisa” Nguyen of Quincy faces up to 51 months in prison and fines for forgery, mail fraud and wire fraud. Working as a dental office manager, she forged doctors’ names to insurance checks and deposited them to her own accounts.

BOSTON

For Phuong “Lisa” Nguyen of Quincy, the scheme was simple.

Starting in 2006, she got jobs as an office or front desk manager for Quincy-area dental practices, forged insurance reimbursement checks with doctors’ names and deposited them to her accounts.

Now she has pleaded guilty in federal court to embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Nguyen, 32, was convicted late Thursday on three counts of uttering a forged security, one count of mail fraud and one count of wire fraud.

She’ll be sentenced Sept. 13. By the terms of her plea agreement she faces up to 51 months in prison, three years of supervised release, a fine of up to $75,000, and restitution to the dental offices.

Prosecutors said Nguyen repeated her scheme at four local offices, going from one to another. When she also had access to the practice’s check book, she would also forge doctors’ name to those and cash or deposit them.

In at least one case Nguyen was fired when her embezzlement was discovered.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office was assisted in the investigation by the U.S. Postal Service, the Norfolk and Suffolk County District Attorney’s offices and the state insurance fraud bureau.

Texas embezzler steals $353k, sentenced to 15 years

Updated 12:41 am, Wednesday, June 19, 2013
 A dental office manager was sentenced to 15 years in prison Tuesday for embezzling $353,000 from her employer, squandering it on items that ranged from a Beyoncé concert to a limousine ride to a church.

Misty Casanova, 34, also is alleged to have spent the money on Lil Wayne and Chamillionaire concerts, Spurs games, a monster truck rally, a quinceañera, multiple hair appointments and to pay for a divorce. In addition, she transferred more than $900 to her boyfriend’s prison commissary account, court documents state.

Assistant District Attorney Trey Banack told state District Judge Ron Rangel that Casanova stole from Dr. Fred Seitz roughly 600 times from 2006 to 2010 — filling out checks for cash to herself and using company credit cards.

He asked the judge to assess a 20-year term — the maximum under a plea agreement reached in March. Theft of more than $200,000 is a first-degree felony, usually punishable by up to life in prison. Casanova sought probation.

“She is committed to trying to make payments for that restitution,” defense attorney Jesus Lopez told the judge. “She has a great deal of remorse for her actions.”

But to pay the entire amount back in 10 years — the maximum period of probation — she would have to pay back more than $35,000 per year, the judge pointed out.

Seitz, who owns Seitz Dental Associates on Blanco Road, said that if he couldn’t receive all of the money back, he would prefer to see his former office manager go to prison. The thefts were “devastating” and have caused him to lose respect from family and colleagues, he said.

“They just look at me and say, ‘How could you be so naïve?’” Seitz told the judge.

The dentist also allowed Casanova to rent his old house so her children could attend Churchill High, he said. The home was left “a disaster” when she moved out, prosecutors said, explaining she left behind four cats and a rabbit.

Seitz said he spent $5,000 and months’ worth of nights and weekends restoring the home.

Embezzlement Guilty Plea Nets Prison, $350,000 Repayment for wife of former North Carolina police chief; chief also charged

 

John Chappell, Special to The Pilot

Allison McKenzie, 38, the wife of former town Police Chief Chris McKenzie, pleaded guilty to 77 counts of embezzlement in Superior Court before Judge John O. Craig III and a courtroom full of her supporters.

“You are pleading guilty to 77 counts of embezzlement, and the maximum possible punishment — an amount I could not give you if I wanted to — is 2,310 months or somewhere around 170 some years,” Craig told her. “Are you in fact guilty of these charges?”

“Yes, I am,” she said.

Assistant District Attorney Peter Strickland called SBI Agent Andrew Pappas, who testified of an investigation that uncovered years of deception and theft from her former employer, Pinehurst dentist Dr. G.R. Horton, between early 2005 and June of 2011.

Over the years, according to the investigation, patients were encouraged to pay in cash or offered big discounts to do so, which McKenzie then pocketed. Cash amounts not deposited grew until the business itself was in financial danger. Horton’s own financial situation plummeted.

“We’ve had to borrow money and extend ourselves to keep the business going,” Horton said. “We borrowed against our house personally. We haven’t put anything away toward retirement for some years now.”

After his wife discovered the thefts, all that changed.

“I was hurt, felt a little violated. It was a pretty sad day. End of a relationship and the beginning of this,” he said. “After the initial shock, it explained a lot of issues. We are still fighting our way out of it. Sometimes you say ‘She should be in jail for a long time.’ Sometimes ‘I want my money.’”

Defense attorney Michael Rowland asked Horton if he’d give Allison McKenzie a chance to make restitution.

“Sure, if I believed it serious and doable,” the dentist said. “I have no interest in her suffering at all.”

In court, testimony showed McKenzie used the money over the years on personal items such as clothes and family trips to the beach and mountains.

A former teacher, a neighbor, and an employer each told how the McKenzies had reformed their lives. Rowland read a letter she’d written the Hortons.

“I am so sorry for the hurt I caused you and your family. You were both so good to me, gave me a wonderful career,” she said. “It makes me sick I was so lost on such a dark path. I use this experience to build bridges. My girls have been exposed to a dreadful situation and have learned to be better people. With my last breath I will be trying to make this situation right.”

Rowland told the court he had $50,000 from friends and family in his trust account as a start on restitution.

Strickland said there needed to be rehabilitation, needed to be restitution, but also there needed to be some prison time.

Craig faced a dilemma: prison would mean slim chances of repayment.

“Does the victim want an active sentence?” he mused, and asked, “My question is, if I were to give her a string of active sentences do you think that would assist Dr. Horton? … What if prison makes the family even more destitute?”

The judge turned to the dentist for help.

“Dr Horton do you want me to put this defendant in prison for any length of time?” Craig asked. “You understand it will probably make it harder to pay you.”

“Restitution is my key, whatever serves that…” the dentist replied after some thought. “I go back and forth on this. I am never going to be made whole, the way I look at it. I am having a difficult time. I don’t sit around wanting Allison to suffer. … I have no interest in making her suffer.”

Craig consolidated the 77 counts into 25 for sentencing and found mitigating factors.

“Dr. Horton, I too have gone back and forth on this,” the judge said. “I think she is truly remorseful. Part of me wants to give her a suspended sentence … and place her on probation, (but) sentencing has to be used as a deterrent. There are consequences for committing felonies like this, particularly when they go over a long period of time.”

In the end, Craig sentenced McKenzie to up to five months in prison, 60 months probation and ordered her to repay $300,000 — a minimum of $500 a month — in addition to the $50,000 already collected.

Probation officers may increase that upon review of her financial situation.

“Ms. McKenzie, you know that I could have put you in prison essentially for the rest of your life,” Craig said. “I am trying to be merciful because of what these ladies said on your behalf. I want you to spend the next few months in the prison system so you get a taste of it so that you will never want to return.”

Embezzlement by former police chief leads to felony charges

 The ex-police chief of Carthage, North Carolina, has been charged with felony embezzlement after it was discovered that he used the town’s credit card to pay for personal expenses.

According to WRAL-TV, Chris McKenzie was indicted by a grand jury for embezzlement, and resigned from his position in 2011 after the illegal activity was revealed. After he left the police department, the city of Carthage conducted an accounts payable audit, but found there had been no further instances of misappropriation. In an unrelated case, his wife, Allison McKenzie, has also been charged with similar counts. She is accused of stealing more than $350,000 from the dentist’s office where she worked for many years, states the news source.

In May and July of last year, investigators allege that McKenzie used Carthage’s credit card to buy unauthorized personal goods, reports The Pilot. He is accused of taking a city gasoline key in order to fill the gas tanks for his personal vehicles. As for his wife, she is charged with collecting cash payments from the patients of her former employer and failing to deposit the amounts, instead using the money to purchase personal items.

LAKE PLACID – A chief financial officer of a Lake Placid dentist office was charged Monday with embezzling more than $300,000 from it and another North Country business.

Following a three-month investigation, state police charged Kevin Conroy, 32, of Beekmantown with two counts of grand larceny in the second degree, two counts of falsifying business records, three counts of forgery in the third degree and one count of grand larceny in the third degree.

Conroy was the CFO for High Peaks Dental Professional Partnership, which had an office in Lake Placid until December, and High Peaks Realty, which is based in Plattsburgh. according to a state police press release. The police investigation found that Conroy embezzled more than $300,000 between March 2012 and December 2015, the time period of his employment for the companies.

This was not the first time Conroy was accused of embezzling from a North Country business. In 2011, Conroy was accused of scamming more than $11,000 from his former employer, Curtis Lumber’s Plattsburgh store, according to a 2011 Press-Republican article,

Conroy was arraigned in the town of Plattsburgh court and was released after posting a $50,000 bond. He is scheduled to reappear in court on June 20.

Nikki Burdo, office manager of High Peaks Dental Professional Partnership, said Conroy was discharged from the practice on Dec. 23 of last year for reasons unrelated to the embezzlement charges. She added that “red flags” regarding his employment came up after he was let go.

“At that time, (High Peaks Dental Professional Partnership) doctors were unaware of the situation,” she said. “But talking to their financial advisers, red flags came up after the fact.”

State police spokesman Trooper Kyle Otis said the investigation began when Conroy’s employer reported their concerns to police in February.

The owners of High Peaks Dental Professional Partnership are dentists William Caldon and Michael O’Connor, who practiced out of Lake Placid until December of last year. Burdo said Conroy primarily worked out of the company’s Plattsburgh office but had worked in Lake Placid during his time with the company. She added that the company’s departure from its Lake Placid office was unrelated to Conroy’s charges.

Burdo said High Peaks Dental and High Peaks Realty are two separate businesses, but Caldon and O’Connor have a business partner on the realty side. Burdo said Conroy, in his role, took care of finances and served as a property manager for High Peaks Realty.

“Our primary focus has been working with our patients and trying to provide the best possible care for them,” Burdo said. “Business as usual.”

The 2011 Press-Republican article said state police believed Conroy ran a scheme for several months where he forged billing orders and merchandise-return paperwork at Curtis Lumber so he could get monetary credit on his personal account there.

He was arrested in August 2011 on charges of third-degree grand larceny, first-degree falsifying business records and third-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, but he pled guilty to lesser charges, petty larceny and filling a false instrument in the second degree, and paid a $200 fine, according to the Plattsburgh town court.
