KY woman sentenced for embezzling over $400k from Cincinnati-based employer


A Northern Kentucky woman was sentenced to 30 months in prison after pleading guilty to embezzling her employer.

Michelle M. Clemons, 32-years-old from Independence, Ky., pleaded guilty last August to using wire communications to embezzle funds from Art Woodworking and Manufacturing Co. located in Cincinnati.

According to court documents, from 2006 to 2013, Clemons electronically transferred more than $411,000 from the company for her own financial benefit. She would issue herself unauthorized payroll checks, using the direct deposit function or through manual payroll checks deposited into her personal bank account.

Documents also show Clemons issued reimbursements for business expenses she did not incur.

Clemons was also sentenced to three years supervised released and ordered to repay $231,671.42 to Art Woodworking.
