A Solomon woman has been sentenced to 3 years in federal prison for embezzling from a credit union where she worked.
48 year-old Pamela Emig admitted that from 2005 to 2011 while working for Enterprise Credit in Enterprise, she embezzled $817,000. Emig admitted she kited checks between accounts under her control to cover up embezzlements and increasingly larger shortages.
She would make a large deposit toward the end of the month and include the deposit in the general ledger, but the actual deposit would not be sent to the corporate checking account until the middle of the next month. At that time another larger check would be drafted out of another account at the credit union.
Emig pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement. She has also been ordered to pay $817,000 in restitution.
