TOPEKA, Kansas – The former chief financial officer for a manufacturing firm in Emporia was sentenced Tuesday to four months home confinement for embezzling more than $265,927 from the company, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

She also was ordered to pay full restitution.

Sandra Moore, 58, Emporia, pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement.

In her plea, she admitted the crime occurred beginning in 2008 while she was CFO of Sauder Custom Fabrication, Inc., in Emporia.

She devised a variety of schemes to divert money from her employer’s accounts to her own including:

  • Making unauthorized transfers from the company’s disbursement account to her personal account at ESB Financial in Emporia.
  • Issuing unauthorized checks and depositing them into her personal account.
  • Issuing unauthorized checks to repay loans she obtained from her 401K account.

Using those methods, she embezzled a total of $265,927 from the company.
