Vt. woman gets probation for online fraud

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A 33-year-old Vermont woman is going to spend three years on probation after pleading guilty to wire fraud charges stemming from allegations she stole jewelry that belonged to her employer and sold it on an online auction site.

The Vermont office of the U.S. Attorney says Andrea Carrasquillo of Dummerston also was ordered on Wednesday to pay almost $20,000 in restitution.

Court records say that from November 2010 and March 2011 Carrasquillo sold jewelry online that belonged to her employer Sajen Jewelry.

Prosecutors say Carrasquillo sold 337 pieces of Sajen jewelry online.

When Windham County sheriff's deputies searched her home in March 2011 they found 900 pieces of Sajen jewelry and evidence of an active online business.
