Ex-Office Manager Sentenced for Embezzling $1 Million

Posted:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - The former office manager of a medical practice in Dover has been sentenced to nearly 4 years in prison for embezzling more than $1 million.

A federal judge in Wilmington also ordered 50-year-old Pamela Poore of Smyrna to pay restitution at sentencing on Wednesday.

Authorities say Poore was responsible for daily accounting tasks and making cash deposits. Prosecutors say she misappropriated Internal Medicine of Dover's funds for her own use by writing unauthorized checks and failing to make cash deposits.

According to The News Journal of Wilmington, prosecutors say Poore used the embezzled money to buy expensive clothes, rent a beach house in Bethany Beach, pay off a car loan and host a wedding reception for her son.

Poore pleaded guilty to mail fraud in November.
