LAFAYETTE (AP) — The former manager of a north-central Indiana glass company has been sentenced to two years in prison for embezzling money from the company, in part to make her credit card payments.
Forty-five-year-old Christiana M. Denny of Brookston pleaded guilty in May to corrupt business influence and forgery. She was sentenced Friday by Tippecanoe Superior Court Judge Thomas Busch, who said Denny did not seem remorseful. She was also ordered to pay $59,050 in restitution to Lafayette Glass Co.
The Journal & Courier reports Denny used her position with Lafayette Glass to inflate her paychecks, steal cash deposits and pay her credit cards using the company’s checking account.
She was also accused of using the company’s Sam’s Club card for non-authorized personal purchases ranging from laundry detergent to steaks.
