Las Vegas Woman Arrested For Embezzlement

Danielle Powers

When you talk with Prosperident’s Scott Clfford for even a few minutes his ability to out think embezzlers shines through clearly. As a Supervising Examiner, Scott handles some of Prosperident’s most challenging cases.

One of Scott’s recently completed cases resulted in this woman, Danielle Powers, being arrested for embezzlement. She is charged with four counts of theft over $5,000. Her bail was set at $250,000.

Here is Danielle’s arrest report:

A search of Nevada court records reveals that a Danielle Powers was charged in 2013 for forgery, fraud and embezzlement, as well as 2004 charges for burglary and fraud, and 2003 charges for burglary and drug possession.

Texas And Nevada Serial Embezzler

Dentists should be on the lookout for a serial embezzler named Nancy PRUETT (has also gone by Nancy Richey and Nancy Castillo).  Her date of birth is reported to be 5/12/1967.

It looks like Nancy has been convicted of several embezzlements, and as of the date of writing (June 2020) she is serving a prison sentence in Texas with an expected release date of January 2022.

We have received reports from several other doctors claiming that she stole from them as well.

Here are a couple of pictures of our fired Nancy, and a copy of her extensive Texas criminal convictions is below.  Reportedly she uses online dental job boards to find jobs in dental offices, and has been reported to be ignoring parole conditions that were intended to keep her from working in dental practices.

NV Woman Found Guilty In Embezzlement

A dentist’s receptionist faces up to 25 years in prison after being convicted of five counts of embezzlement by a Carson City jury.

Sentencing for Jill Jeter, 46, is set for April 15.

The jury spent a little more than three hours on Thursday discussing the charges before returning with five guilty verdicts.

According to Deputy District Attorney Jason Woodbury, Jeter was accused of intercepting cash payments to the dentist’s office where she worked between Sept. 1, 1999 and Dec. 22, 1999.

He said the prosecution proved she would take payments from clients and then not enter them into the dentist’s accounting system.

A summons was issued for Jeter to appear in court and she was arraigned on May 22, 2000.

In addition to paying an undetermined amount of restitution, Jeter could also face up to $50,000 in fines. Embezzlement carries a sentence of one-to-five years in prison.
