On Thursday, November 30, 2017, it was announced that a Hoover, Alabama man had been sentenced to prison for stealing money from two former employees and a non-profit organization that supported the Million Dollar Band of the University of Alabama. 33-year-old Randall Sho Woods was sentenced to two years and three months in prison on two counts of wire fraud and a single count of bank fraud. Woods previously pleaded guilty to the charges in June of this year.
Woods was employed as a staff accountant by Ingram’s Accounting & Financial Management Inc. in Tuscaloosa. While working with the business, the defendant fraudulently charged more than $30,000 on corporate credit card accounts. The money was used for personal purposes. Woods was previously employed by State Traditions as an account clerk. During his time with that company, he engaged in numerous fraudulent activities.
He stole money from State Traditions’ PayPal account and forged the endorsement of one of the company’s owners on multiple checks. In total, the defendant stole more than $150,000 from the companies. Finally, Woods worked as the treasurer of the Million Dollar Band Association. While in that position, he stole more than $28,000 by writing checks made payable to himself.
