Woman Sentenced To Prison For Stealing $380k From Employer

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman has been sentenced to prison for stealing more than $380,000 from her employer by charging personal expenses to a corporate credit card.

Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly says 48-year-old Dawn Mininberg, of Easton, was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Bridgeport to 12 months and one day behind bars followed by three years of probation. Mininberg pleaded guilty Jan. 15 to wire fraud.

Prosecutors say Mininberg worked for a company in Greenwich where she provided financial services and was issued a corporate credit card for business purposes.

They say Mininberg charged approximately $380,000 in personal expenses to the card, including for clothing, children’s parties and lessons, charitable donations, vacations and an $11,000 jungle gym. Mininberg categorized the purchases as business expenses.
