A Clinton man will spend 30 months in jail for federal wire fraud

A 37-year-old Clinton, Maryland, man was sentenced on Thursday, July 20 for having stolen cash from a safe he had been entrusted to protect at his job. He will spend the next 30 months in jail, a period of incarceration that will be followed up by three years of supervised release. He'll also be expected to repay the $209,000 it was determined he had stolen during his tenure in working for his employer.

Investigators with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the United States Secret Service first began looking into the theft in September 2014 after a internal grievance was filed against the man. It was around that time that the man's employer, Delaware North Companies, reported that an audit had shown that more than $14,700 was missing from their safe.

At that time, the defendant worked as controller with the retail food and beverage distributor that services Oriole Park at Camden Yards, a position that gave him control over the company's safe. In fact, in his role, he supervised all aspects of the company's accounting and finances. Upon the discovery of the missing money, the man was suspended from his job.

In further investigating the case of the missing money, it was determined that the man had actually stolen more than $230,000 from the safe. In order to cover up his impropriety, he seemingly had taken checks earmarked for other purposes and deposited them instead into the account that backed up the safe. In fact, he was found to have deposited at least 28 different checks to the wrong accounts to cover up his theft.

If you've been accused of having engaged in some type of white collar crime, then it's important for you to know that prosecutors will invest significant resources in investigating and trying your case. In discussing your own case with a Clinton, Maryland, federal criminal defense attorney, he or she can advise you of potential defense strategies that may be able to be pursued in your legal matter.
