This week, it was announced that Stantisha D. Kemp had been sentenced to prison for embezzling more than $1.2 million dollars from her employer over a period of six years. Evidence shows that Kemp served as a payroll and accounting manager of an Atlanta-based company that developed medical technology from 2007 to 2013. During that time, the defendant embezzled more than $1.2 million dollars by falsifying payroll records sent to a third-party payroll processing company. She also instructed the processor to direct deposit funds into her personal bank accounts on a monthly basis.
Kemp falsely told the processing company that a doctor with the initials Y.H.J. was a company employee. She ordered the company to direct deposit Y.H.J.’s salary into her personal bank accounts. She attempted to conceal her actions by creating a set of fabricated internal payroll records that made no mention of Y.H.J. In reality, Y.H.J. had not been employed by the company since April of 2010. Regardless, the unauthorized salary payments were deposited into Kemp’s personal bank accounts on a monthly basis.
That stopped in February of 2013. The defendant has been sentenced to two years in prison and three years of supervised release. She has also been ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,253,287. Further details can be found here.
