Former Vermont woman pleads guilty to embezzlementJuly 25,2014Former Vt. woman
BURLINGTON — A former Quechee woman has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $125,000 from a research firm where she worked.
Fifty-one-year-old Jayne Concialdi was an administrative assistant to the treasurer of New England Research Inc. in White River Junction.
Court records say she embezzled the money throughout three years starting in 2011 to pay her credit card bills and made purchases using the company’s credit card.
Concialdi, who now lives in Connecticut, turned herself in to police in March. She pleaded guilty to wire fraud on Thursday.
She faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 if convicted.
