Michigan Woman ordered to repay $60k; paying $800 per month

BURTON, MI — Police say a Clarkston woman’s embezzlement from a Burton dentist office forced the business to lay off employees after at least $60,000 was stolen.

mullinsMarilyn Elaine Mullins, 46, was ordered by Genesee Circuit Judge Joseph J. Farah to repay $60,000 to Convenient Family Dentistry after she pleaded guilty to two counts of embezzlement of $20,000-$50,000 by an agent or trustee and one count of embezzlement of $1,000-$20,000.

“It’s a surprise that she didn’t bankrupt them,” said Burton police detective Shawn Duncanson, who investigated the case.

Duncanson said Mullins, who was in charge of the office’s finances, stole money multiple different ways, including crediting her own accounts and taking cash.

The theft was eventually discovered after the office’s general manager noticed that revenues were down but could not figure out why, Duncanson said.

Mullins committed a similar crime before in Oakland County but that the background check the dentist office ran did not include the offense, Duncanson said.

Duncanson sent Farah a letter asking him to sentence Mullins to prison time, but Farah instead ordered that a one-year jail term be held in abeyance and that Mullins pay $800 per month in restitution to cover the stolen funds. He also placed her on five years’ probation at the Oct. 1 sentencing.

Long-time Michigan office manager Rhonda Wilson convicted of stealing from orthodontic office

RHONDA WILSON $100k ORTHODONTIC FRAUD

A business manager for a Holland Township orthodontic practice is in jail after she pleaded guilty last week to embezzling from the father-daughter practice.

A business manager for a Holland Township orthodontic practice is in jail after she pleaded guilty last week to embezzling from the father-daughter practice.

Rhonda Lee Wilson, 58, pleaded guilty in Ottawa County District Court to embezzlement of between $50,000 and $100,000 for crimes dating back to 2007, but Dr. Daniel George says she was stealing from the practice for at least seven years.

It’s a more common problem than the Georges thought.

“Out of the woodwork, people are calling, saying, ‘This happened to us as well,'” George said. “The reason we prosecuted is because we had friends, they didn’t prosecute, and (perpetrators) went on and embezzled elsewhere.”

Wilson received eight months in jail and 36 months probation, Ottawa County Prosecutor Ron Frantz said.

“That’s nothing,” George said. “If you went (to prison) for years, that would sure get your attention.”

Wilson will also have to pay more than $180,600 in restitution to the Georges, according to sheriff’s documents.

Michigan dental bookkeeper gets jail for stealing $50-100,000

An Alma woman was ordered to spend six months in jail and pay back an as-of-yet undetermined amount of restitution when she was sentenced Monday for embezzling money from her former employer.

Wendi Torres, 48, of Alma pleaded in October to embezzling between $50,000 and $100,000 from Mid Michigan Dental Excellence of Alma, her employer of about 10 years.

Gratiot County Circuit Court Judge Randy Tahvonen also ordered that Torres’ new employer be notified of the conviction.

Chief Assistant Gratiot County Prosecutor Jennifer Shephard said Torres was an office manager at the business.

As part of her duties, Torres handled payroll, and from 2012 until March of 2015 she claimed more hours and overtime pay than she actually worked.

By her calculations, Torres claimed more than 2,000 unearned hours over three years, Shephard said.

Those hours were reported on W2 forms, but it wasn’t until the most recent tax year that the owner of the business noticed the discrepancy. “She was a trusted employee,” Shephard said. “Her employer indicated (the embezzlement) affected his personal finances, but it also impacted the morale of the office staff, and that he was unable to give bonuses because of it.”

Torres, who has no previous criminal record, was put on five years of probation, and ordered to pay restitution within that same time.

Restitution is still being calculated, Shephard said.

Our friend Susan Gunn’s case –Michigan woman to 3 years for embezzling nearly $1 million from Midland dentist

11491115-standard[1].jpg

MIDLAND, MI — A Midland woman apologized Thursday, Oct. 18, for her involvement in an embezzlement scheme that stole nearly $1 million from the Midland dentist office where she worked.

“What I did is inexcusable,” said Stephanie K. Cieslinski, moments before a judge ordered her to serve at least three years in prison for the crime.

Cieslinski pleaded guilty to a charge of embezzlement of more than $100,000, although prosecutors allege the actual amount stolen from Midland Dentist Dr. Michael T. Smith over a period of years was close to $1 million.

She also pleaded guilty in August to a count of embezzling between $50,000 and $100,000.

Her husband, a former Bay County Jail corrections officer, also faces charges in the case.

Cieslinski appeared before Midland County Circuit Judge Jonathan E. Lauderbach Thursday to receive her sentence.

“Instead of going to dental school and taking all the risks a business owner takes to provide a livelihood, you hit fast forward and went to the profit to put money in your pocket,” Lauderbach said. “There is no way to justify it.”

Lauderbach sentenced Cieslinski to a minimum of 36 months to 20 years for the more serious charge and a minimum of 36 months to 15 years for the lesser charge. The sentences run concurrent with Cieslinski given credit for 109 days served.

Cieslinski is to pay $750,000 in restitution and has already paid close to $35,000, said Bay City attorney Robert J. Dunn, who represented Cieslinski.

Dunn said a condition of her plea was that her minimum sentence not exceed 36 months.

Lauderbach said that he would have had “no problem going higher than the 36 month cap.” He said that the court’s objective of getting a defendant out of jail and back to work to repay the victim does not work in this case due to the magnitude of her crime.

“You’re 53 years old, you’re a convicted felon and you are a thief,” Lauderbach told Cieslinski. “You will never repay this, and I will be shocked if Dr. Smith sees a tenth of what he is owed.”

Lauderbach said that when defendents have a reason for theft, such as a drug addiction or a gambling problem, the crime is understandable, although not excusable.

“You just wanted nicer stuff, so you stole money to get it,” Lauderbach said. “I can’t make any sense of that.”

Dressed in an orange jumpsuit, Cieslinski cried when she spoke prior to her sentencing.

“Dr. Smith and his family are good people, and I stole from him,” she said.

“I truly truly am sorry for all the pain I have caused, and after today I hope he can move forward and put this behind him.”

Cieslinski’s husband, Kenneth W. Cieslinski, faces two counts of embezzlement by an agent or trust between $1,000 and $20,000, a five-year felony.

Midland County Prosecutor Michael D. Carpenter previously said the couple stole nearly $1 million from Smith. The funds were stored in a bank account in Kenneth Cieslinski’s name, Carpenter has said.

“While (Cieslinski’s) daughters drove new cars, (Dr. Smith’s) daughters drove clunkers,” Carpenter said. “She took for herself a dental salary, swapped lives with him and took his life for 10 years.”

Kenneth Cieslinski worked as a corrections officer at the Bay County Jail since January 1986 and was a month away from retiring when his boss, Sheriff John E. Miller, arrested him July 2.

Kenneth Cieslinski’s next court date is pending.

MIDLAND (WWJ/AP) – A Midland man who authorities say helped his wife embezzle from her dentist employer her has been sentenced to pay nearly $1 million in restitution.

Kenneth Cieslinski, 55, appeared recently before a Midland County Circuit Court judge, where he was ordered to repay $998,000 and be on probation for five years.

Cieslinski previously pleaded no contest to receiving and concealing property valued between $1,000 and $20,000, and receiving and concealing property valued between $200 and $1,000. Two counts of embezzlement between $1,000 and $20,000 were dismissed.

Cieslinski declined to speak during the hearing. Defense lawyer Eric E. Proschek said the situation has been “hard for everybody.”

Last year, Cieslinski’s 55-year-old wife Stephanie was ordered to serve at least three years in prison for stealing from the Midland dentist’s office of Dr. Michael Smith, where she was employed for 10 years as an office manager.

Over the course of her employment, prosecutors say Stephanie Cieslinski collected checks written to Smith, used his signature stamp to endorse them and followed by endorsing the checks with her own name. She would then deposit the checks into her husband’s credit union account.

The money, which amounted to nearly $1 million over a decade, was spent on vacations, college tuition, new cars, a Harley-Davidson, a $35,000 wedding, jewelry and more, The Midland Daily News reported.Detectives were investigating the couple for over a year and a half before charges were sought.

Stephanie Cieslinski, who was also ordered to pay $715,000 in restitution, is currently appealing her case, according to court records.

In January, a judge ordered Kenneth Cieslinski to turn over his wife’s property to Smith, including a laptop computer, jewelry and a 2006 Jeep Compass. Smith has also filed a civil suit against the couple. A hearing is set in that case in August.

Reed gets year in jail; must repay $160K she embezzled from Michigan dentist

Reed gets year in jail must repay $160K she embezzled

CORUNNA – Judge Gerald Lostracco said he wanted to send a message to any other potential embezzlers Friday during an Owosso woman’s sentencing on felony embezzlement charges.

Lisa Reed, 35, of Owosso, received a year in the Shiawassee County Jail, four years probation, 275 hours of community service and must pay nearly $160,000 in restitution. She admitted in August to taking about $53,000 from November 2002 to July 2008 while she worked as the office manager for local dentist Dr. Sheryl Harr-Thompson.

“This was not a spur of the moment event,” Lostracco said in Shiawassee Circuit Court. “It was an extreme use of bad judgment. It went on year after year. If someone comes into this courtroom and is asked to describe you, there’s a number of things that come into mind – thief, crook, embezzler and now a convicted felon.”

Reed was charged with embezzling more than $50,000 but less than $100,000 – which carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and/or a $25,000 fine, or three times the amount embezzled, whichever is greater.

Lostracco ordered Reed pay $159,860.97 in restitution to Dr. Harr-Thompson.

Defense attorney John J. Homola said Reed agreed to pay back the $53,000 she admitted to taking during her August plea hearing. Homola said the nearly $160,000 is a figure that came up during the Reed’s presentence investigation.

There will be a restitution hearing to figure out exactly how much she’ll repay.

“We just want to make sure the figure is accurate,” Homola said. “It’s up to the victim to provide proof of her losses.”

Lostracco said he had dozens of letters in support of Dr. Harr-Thompson and the damage Reed’s criminal activity had on her family practice.

Dr. Harr-Thompson read part of her five-page letter in court before Lostracco cut her off. She said a computer forensic investigator found Reed spent at least four hours per day on Web sites such aswww.singleparent.com, match.com and www.myspace.com.

“When the practice’s revenue first dropped off, I felt I just had to work harder,” Dr. Harr-Thompson read, adding she had to drop a pension plan and any raises she provided for her employees.

Assistant Shiawassee Prosecutor Deana Finnegan said Reed has not paid any restitution to Dr. Harr-Thompson.

When visiting Judge Robert Ransom continued Reed’s bond in August, the assumption was she was going to get a job or work at her parents’ farm for $8 per hour.

Homola said she lost a job at a factory and had $82 to go toward restitution.

“I believe Ms. Reed has deceived this court,” Finnegan said. “She was not working at the family farm.”

Reed wept during her courtroom apology to Dr. Harr-Thompson, the dentist office employees and to her family.

“Your criminal conduct certainly has a lot of ripple effect beyond the individual,” Lostracco said. “Unfortunately your family and your children are going to be experiencing those effects.”

Homola also said the only other charge on Reed’s record was an embezzlement case 12 years ago. Lostracco said that charge started as a felony before it was reduced to a misdemeanor.

“Ms. Reed could’ve went to prison today,” Homola said. “I think Judge Lostracco sent a clear message that this kind of behavior is not going to be tolerated in Shiawassee County.”

Michigan office manager convicted of embezzlement, drug charges

Vicki Zachary.jpg

A Dowagiac woman will spend about half-a-year in jail for stealing money and drugs from the dentist’s office where she worked.

That’s according to the Niles Daily Star.

Vicki Zachary, 45, was sentenced to 180 days, or roughly six months, behind bars, and five years’ probation, after she pleaded guilty to felony embezzlement and ten charges of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

Zachary admitted to stealing between $200 to $300 a couple times a week over a period of several years while working as an office manager at Burling and Gillesby.

That added up to a total of nearly $150,000. She also confessed to calling in fraudulent prescriptions for drugs and then keeping them for herself.

As a condition of her plea agreement, Zachary also agreed to repay the stolen money.

DOWAGIAC, MI — A 45-year-old Dowagiac woman accused of stealing money — and the authority to order Vicodin– from the dentist’s office she managed for 15 years turned herself in to authorities Jan. 2 and now faces felony drug and embezzling charges.

Vicki Zachary, of 304 Gray St., is being charged with embezzlement of between $50,000 and $100,000 from Burling and Gillesby, DDS, P.C., a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison, according to a news release from Cass County Prosecutor Victor Fitz and Dowagiac Director of Public Safety Tom Atkinson.

In addition, Zachary is accused of 10 times using false authorization from the office to obtain a controlled substance, hydrocodone. That resulted in 10 counts of Obtaining by Fraud a Controlled Substance.

Cass County assistant prosecutor Tiffiny Vahwinkle said the alleged embezzlement and drug purchases related to the specific charges were from September 2011 through December 2012. Police are investigating whether incidents may have gone back further, Dowagiac Deputy Chief Steve Grinnewald said.

Grinnewald said Zachary came under investigation after a Van Buren County pharmacy contacted the dentist’s office questioning a prescription Zachary tried to have filled. The office contacted police, who found 33 prescriptions, for 30-day supply of pills, under Zachary’s name or names of her various relatives, the deputy police chief said.

The dentist’s office, upon investigation, determined that money was missing, too, and began an audit that became the basis for the embezzlement charge, Grinnewald said.

He said that police do not know where the money allegedly embezzled by Zachary went, and that it appears the pills were for her personal use.

Bond was set at $25,000 cash/surety on the embezzlement charge and $10,000 for the controlled substance charge. Zachary is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges, which were authorized by the prosecutor’s office, at 9 a.m. Jan. 16 in front of District Court Judge Stacey Rentfrow.

Embezzlement series: Part 3

While Dr. Charles Burling was filling teeth, his 15-year office employee was embezzling $150,000 of his Dowagiac dental practice’s money.

By Kathy Jessup
EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the third story in our six-part series, “Other Peoples’ Money.” Today the Journal talks to a victim who lost $150,000.

While Dr. Charles Burling was filling teeth, his 15-year office employee was embezzling $150,000 of his Dowagiac dental practice’s money.

Over several years, in more than 400 thefts, the money disappeared.

“I had a sense that something wasn’t right for almost two years,” Burling said. “We wanted to upgrade our X-ray machines but there never seemed to be the extra money to do that. I had our accounting firm look into it and they found nothing really glaring. She had hidden things pretty well.”

Despite good business, the practice also had to freeze staff wages.

“She was walking out with the gals’ raises and we didn’t know it. That had a pretty negative impact on the staff.”

Burling said his staff was shocked to learn the woman was losing her car and her home, despite earning “pretty good money.”

Finally it was the prescription pad rather than the accounting ledger that sparked scrutiny.

“The thing that got the investigation rolling was the discovery that she was also calling in prescriptions for herself, using her husband and her children’s names,” Burling recalled. “She was let go while those charges were being investigated and then someone else saw the financial things she had done.”

For her crime, the convicted felon, a first-time offender, was sentenced to six months in the Cass County Jail, serving only about four, according to Burling, based on good conduct during incarceration.

Burling said the practice received $25,000 from its insurance coverage, all of it spent on accountants who ferreted out the losses and reconstructed the practice’s accounts.

Burling expects to recover none of the $150,000 from the embezzler.

His experience supports justice critics who argue embezzlement sentencing is an ineffective deterrent.

“This woman was serving months in jail for embezzling about the same amount of money she was earning in a year,” he said, referring to her four months of time served.

The long-time, trusted office manager had been pocketing cash payments made to the practice, then used insurance checks to make the books balance.

Besides a drug addiction, the woman had also turned to gambling, hoping a big win at area casinos would provide the cash to pay back the money she was stealing. Later, when confronted with reconstructed accounts showing she had taken $150,000, Burling said the woman did not believe her theft had amounted to that much.
“Probably the thing that hurts the most is that this person had really become part of our family in that 15 years,” Burling said. “But when the poop hits the fan, you have to get over that quickly and realize that person doesn’t give a rip about you or they wouldn’t have stolen from you.”

In many respects, the Dowagiac dental practice case is stereotypical of the national embezzlement experience. The perpetrators are more likely to be women than men, although men tend to take larger amounts, studies show.

This perpetrator was a first-time offender who was highly trusted by her long-time employers. The Marquet Report on Embezzlement found “less than 5 percent of major embezzlers have a prior criminal history.”

Burling said an official at the Michigan Dental Association has indicated 65 percent of the state’s practices eventually will be the victims of embezzlement. The Heckman Group, a Holland medical management firm, estimates that in any five-year period, 80 percent of all medical practices will experience embezzlement.

So if embezzlement is so widespread, why are there not more prosecutions?

Probably for the same reason it’s difficult to find an individual or organization willing to talk publicly about their experience. Often the reason is shame and to protect a business reputation.

“Maybe more harmful was the loss in the confidence our patients had in us,” Burling acknowledged. “We had some people come to us and tell us, ‘If you can’t run a business, I don’t have confidence in you.’ I had to say to some of them, ‘Look, I’ve been fixing your teeth for the last 35 years. I guess you think I can do that.’.”

Pay or stay in jail for woman who embezzled $170K from Michigan dental office

ellenbass

 

At a rate of $300 per month, it would take about 47 years to pay the $170,000 and Kathy Elenbaas would be 101 years old before the debt is satisfied.

Content retrieved from: Pay or stay in jail for woman who embezzled $170K from dental office | MLive.com

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – The clock is ticking for a woman who stole an estimated $170,000 from the Gaines Township dentists she once described as “great bosses.”

Kathy Lyn Elenbaas pleaded guilty nearly a year ago to stealing the money from Dental Associates of West Michigan, 6208 Kalamazoo Ave. SE, by pocketing cash in ever-growing multiple thefts between 2011 and 2013.

In October, Kent County Circuit Court Judge Paul Sullivan delayed sentencing on the 15-year felony for a year to give Elenbaas a chance to make a dent in the debt.

But as of Tuesday, Sept. 8, Elenbaas had paid only a couple thousand dollars off the debt because she has had trouble getting a job due to her record. Elenbaas’ attorney Jason Jansma said his client has gotten a $12-per-hour temp job and expects to be hired permanently at $17-per-hour soon.

In court Tuesday, Sullivan said the amount paid back has been a disappointment to the owners of the dental office, so the judge decided to impose a tougher sentence.

Sullivan said that Elenbaas is now under house arrest for at least one year, monitored by a GPS tether that allows her to go only to work and appointments approved by her probation officer.

She is also under probation for five years during which time if she is not making efforts to pay, the judge says she will go to jail for one year.

“I want you to understand the seriousness of this,” Sullivan told Elenbaas. The judge said given the extent of the theft, a year in jail is earned, but he wants to see the victims made whole.

Sullivan ordered that she pay at least $300 a month and that she increase that amount over the course of the next five years to pay the debt off.

At a rate of $300 per month, it would take about 47 years to pay the $170,000 – Elenbaas would be 101 years old.

Elenbaas told the judge she hopes to pay as much as $800 per month when she gets her raise.

“I can’t take it back, but I can try really hard to pay it back,” Elenbaas told Sullivan.

Woman jailed for embezzlement from Michigan dentist

A 52-year-old woman caught embezzling from an Auburn dentist was sentenced for her crime this week.

Truly Ann Dominowski, of Auburn, was charged with a felony count of embezzlement of $20,000 to $50,000 as a result of an investigation that began after her employer, Dr. Peter Morley Jr., discovered she had been stealing money from his practice, the Auburn Family Dentistry, where she was employed as the office manager.

Dominowski entered a guilty plea to a count of attempted embezzlement in April, and was sentenced Monday in the Bay County Circuit Court. Judge Kenneth W. Schmidt levied 120 days in jail, three years probation, 400 hours of community service, $30,184 restitution and no contact with the victims or staff members.

Morley spoke during the sentencing and provided the Daily News with a copy of his statement, which chronicles years of believing the economy was to blame for difficulty paying the bills.

“She knew over the last several years how difficult it was for me to pay all the bills at my office,” Morley said. “Often I was unable to make the payroll and I did not get paid.”

The investigation showed that Dominowski, who worked at the business 21 years, had been stealing since 2008, and the total was well over $100,000. Morley said he was shocked to find she took the money even though he paid her a good salary, plus bonuses and vacations, and treated her family for free.

After being unable to give his employees raises for the last few years, having to tell them the practice income was flat and his income had gone down, things began looking up as soon as Dominowski was let go.

“I was able to give all of my employees a good raise just weeks after she was gone and another raise later in the year. I have never had another problem paying any of my bills since she has been gone and our schedule is the same,” he said.

Before asking for the maximum penalty in the case, Morley commented on the Dominowski’s lifestyle, including regularly redecorating her home, spending time at her vacation home, showing off her wardrobe and jewelry and sending her daughter to a private school, all while stealing from him and pretending to be his friend. He called the restitution almost symbolic in comparison to what she stole.

“She has damaged my practice and hurt my family, my employees and my patients,” he said. “We have put in hundreds of hours trying to clean up the accounts and I am still writing off thousands of dollars on patient accounts that say they paid cash.”
