Ex-Indiana bookkeeper gets 2 years for $100,000 credit fraud

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Prosecutors say a former southern Indiana bookkeeper has been sentenced to two years in prison for a fraud case worth more than $100,000.

Authorities say 45-year-old Alice Marie Casey of Jeffersonville was convicted on three counts of access device fraud. She also must pay restitution and serve three years of supervised released and perform community service.

Officials say Casey was employed as a bookkeeper at MIC in Jeffersonville where she worked with credit cards. She paid the company’s credit card bills, issued cards to new employees and did other tasks.

Prosecutors say Casey opened several credit card accounts under other employees’ names without the company’s knowledge or authorization. They say she used the cards to pay for personal items, including firearms, furniture, electronics, theater tickets and life insurance policies.
