Shepherdsville woman guilty of stealing $243,000 from employer
Kathleen Marie Farias admits using employer's funds to pay more than $243,000 in personal expenses over five year period
From U.S. Attorney's Office
Department of Justice, Western District of Kentucky
LOUISVILLE, KY (26 Jan 2016) - United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr. announced the guilty plea of Kathleen Marie Farias to charges related to the theft of over $243,000 from her Bullitt County employer, before Judge Greg Stivers in U.S. District Court.
Farias, 53, a resident of Shepherdsville in Bullitt County, entered a guilty plea yesterday, to seven counts of wire fraud in the June 17, 2015 indictment. According to the indictment and to facts admitted by Farias in open court, from June 18, 2009 through September 22, 2014, Farias was employed as the office manager for Prestige Plastics Technology LLC, and was responsible for the business' accounts payable. Farias used funds from the business' account to make online bill payments of $243,257.06 for her own personal expenses, which included payments to charge cards and mortgage processors.
The court entered an agreed order of restitution setting forth $243,257.06 as the amount Farias is responsible to repay to her former employer.
If Farias had been convicted at trial, the maximum potential penalties were 140 years in prison, a $1,750,000 fine, and a three year period of supervised release.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jason Snyder, and is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Louisville Division.
Farias is scheduled for sentencing before Judge Stivers on April 19, 2016, in Louisville, Kentucky.
