Northern Idaho Woman Sentenced for Embezzling More Than $1M
(KLIX) – A 63-year-old northern Idaho woman wills pend some time behind bars for embezzling more than a million dollars.
Sue Ann Larson, of Coeur d’Alene, was sentenced to 43 months in federal prison for wire fraud and for making and subscribing a false tax return, U.S. Attorney Bart M. Davis said in a news release on Wednesday.
After her prison term has ended, Larson, who pleaded guilty to both crimes in February, will serve three years supervised release.
Larson was ordered by U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill to pay more than $1.4 million in restitution to the victims of her crime and to sell her home, a recreational property, and two classic cars, to meet her restitution obligation, Davis said.
According to court records, Larson, a bookkeeper for a local custom cabinet shop, embezzled over $1.2 million between 2009 and February 2018. During that time, Larson also falsified her tax returns, failing to pay $175,000 in taxes.
