NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF THE U.S. ATTORNEY FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI

WEBB CITY WOMAN SENTENCED FOR EMBEZZLING $114,000 FROM HER EMPLOYER

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Webb City, Mo., woman was sentenced in federal court today for embezzling more than $114,000 from her employer.

Roxanna Sue Rindom, 47, of Webb City, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Beth Phillips to 18 months in federal prison without parole. The court also ordered Rindom to pay $114,814 in restitution.

On Sept. 4, 2013, Rindom pleaded guilty to two counts of bank fraud and one count of credit card fraud.

Rindom, who was employed by Neal Group Construction, LLC, in Joplin, Mo., admitted that she forged 68 checks on her employer's bank account that were made payable to herself. In order to conceal the forgeries, Rindom made fictitious entries into the company's accounting system, QuickBooks. The majority of the entries are written as fictitious company-related expenditures. Rindom also designated on some of the checks that it was a payroll check for a certain pay period, when in fact it was not a lawful payroll check.

Rindom also admitted that she made 174 unauthorized purchases on the company's credit card. In addition, Rindom made five unauthorized alterations to the direct deposits made to her bank account. There were also several unauthorized purchases made by Rindom on the Neal Group Construction's account at the Lowe's store in Joplin.

Rindom's criminal conduct was discovered on May 23, 2012, when she attempted to make an unauthorized $2,179 wire transfer from her employer's bank account to pay her daughter's student loan payment. This attempted theft prompted the company to conduct a detailed audit of the checking account. The loss for Rindom's criminal conduct totals $114,814.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Abram McGull II. It was investigated by the FBI.
