Vt. woman in embezzlement case returns to prison

Posted: Updated:

RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A woman who served nearly three years in jail for taking $730,000 from her Vermont employer is heading back to prison for 10 months for covering up the sale of a Florida vacation home.

The Burlington Free Press reports 66-year-old Susan Emilo said she knew a court-imposed restitution order remained in effect, but instead opted to remodel a home in Myrtle Beach, S.C., using the proceeds of the Florida home sale in 2009.

The Emilos received $50,000 for giving up their half-share in the home in Rockwell Estates on Merritt Island.

Emilo was a part-time bookkeeper for an environmental consulting company in Lincoln. She was convicted of stealing money between 1992 and 2002. She pleaded guilty to mail fraud and other charges and went to prison in 2004.
