Woman Gets 57 Mos in Jail for Embezzling Over $400,000 from Employer

Hoboken Woman Sentenced to 57 Months in

Prison for Embezzling More Than $400,000 from


U.S. Attorney’s Office July 17, 2014
  • Southern District of Georgia (912) 652-4422

WAYCROSS, GA—Angela Diane Griffis, 46, of Hoboken, Georgia, was sentenced last week to 57 months in prison by United States District Court Chief Judge Lisa Godbey Wood after earlier pleading guilty to embezzling over $400,000 from her employer.

According to evidence presented at the guilty plea and sentencing hearings, Griffis was employed as the office manager of a pediatric medical practice group in Waycross, Georgia. Over the course of nearly six years, Griffis schemed to embezzle from her employer by preparing fraudulent checks and electronic transfers for her own benefit. To cover up the scheme, Griffis made fraudulent entries in her employer’s accounting records to make it appear as if the fraudulent expenses were legitimate when, in fact, they were not. The stolen money was used to finance Griffis’s lavish lifestyle, including paying for numerous vacations, shopping sprees, and other personal expenses. As part of the sentence, Griffis was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $406,545.26 to the victims.

United States Attorney Edward Tarver stated, “Protecting our community from financial fraud and economic crimes, whether occurring in the public or private sector, is a top priority for this Office. Griffis’s embezzlement scheme inflicted upon her employer and the community an unnecessary harm well beyond the direct financial impact. This United States Attorney’s Office and its law enforcement partners will continue to vigorously investigate and prosecute financial crimes.”

The case was jointly investigated by the FBI and the Waycross Police Department, Criminal Investigations Section. Assistant United States Attorney T. Shane Mayes prosecuted the case on behalf of the United States. For additional information, please contact First Assistant United States Attorney James D. Durham at (912) 201-2547.

I don't know.  57 months for $400,000.  That's just under a $100,000 per year.

Well I hope she can pay the $400K+, but I really doubt it.

Hi David,

What a burden this person is going to have once they get released from doing time.

On a license plate manufacturing salary it'll be tough to pay back, Gabe.

It does seem rather doubtful, Rebecca, but who knows, she might win the lottery before she begins serving her prison sentence.

So right, Adrian.
