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