A Dickinson County woman has been sentenced to two years probation after pleading guilty to embezzling $85,000 from the Enterprise Credit Union.
Deborah A. Bomia of Enterprise pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement. She admitted from that April 30, 2005, to Aug. 8, 2011, while she worked for Enterprise Credit Union, she kited checks between accounts in her name at credit union, creating false and fictitious balances.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says Bomia would make a large deposit toward the end of the month, which would be included in the general ledger, but the actual deposit would not be sent to the corporate checking account until around the middle of the next month. At the same time, another larger check would be drafted out of Bomia’s credit union checking account.
The final deposit to the general ledger was recorded July 29, 2011, in the amount of $85,000. The money was never deposited to the credit union’s corporate account.
U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom thanked the FBI, Assistant U.S. Attorney Rich Hathaway, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Christine Kenney for their work on the case.
