TOPEKA, KS—A former employee of a credit union in Dickinson County has pleaded guilty to embezzling $85,000, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.
Deborah A. Bomia, 46, Enterprise, Kansas, pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement. In her plea, she admitted the crime occurred from April 30, 2005 to August 8, 2011, while she worked for Enterprise Credit Union in Enterprise, Kansas.
Bomia kited checks between accounts in her name at Enterprise Credit Union, creating false and fictitious balances. The embezzlement involved making a large deposit toward the end of the month, which would be included in the general ledger, but the actual deposit would not be sent to the corporate checking account until around the middle of the next month. At the same time, another, larger check would be drafted out of Bomia’s credit union checking account. The final deposit to the general ledger was recorded July 29, 2011, in the amount of $85,000. The money was never deposited to the credit union’s corporate account.
Bomia agreed to an order of restitution of $85,000. Sentencing is set for October 10. Grissom commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Rich Hathaway and Assistant U.S. Attorney Christine Kenney for their work on the case.
