Former Printing Employee Gets Year in Jail
MODESTO, CA—A printing company's former office manager will be spending the next year in jail after pleading no contest earlier this week to embezzlement and identity theft charges. Prosecutors said that Jessica Sue Hoover, 25, stole $76,000 from Gowans Printing between Jan. 1, 2007, and July 14, 2008, according to the Modesto Bee.
Prosecutors said Hoover wrote checks to herself, used the company's ATM card to pay her own bills and stole the identity of 10 people associated with the business, the paper reported. In addition to the jail time, Hoover was ordered to pay restitution and court fees.
