Former Boulder, Colorado Bookkeeper Given a Two-Year Jail Sentence

Amber Turner, a 30-year old mother of one and a former Boulder, Colorado bookkeeper at Boulder-based Precision Phototonics, was sentenced on February 25, 2010, by a Boulder County judge to a 2-year jail sentence for stealing about $230,000 from her employer from early 2007 to the middle of 2008.
Turner apparently spent the money on such items as ski passes, a Mercedes-Benz, lingerie, cruises, trips to Las Vegas and show tickets.
Turner had forged the company president’s name on checks and used company credit cards. She would then intercept bank statements and bills to cover-up her theft.
According to her employer, because of Turners thefts, and Precision Phototonics’ resulting lack of operating funds, the company was forced to lay-off six of its 35 employees, including a Tibetan refugee, two Hmong refugees from Laos, and a grandmother with responsibility for taking care of her two grandchildren.
Turner was originally charged with 17 felony counts, including theft and forgery.
