OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A former bookkeeper at an Oklahoma City electrical contracting company has been sentenced to eight months in prison for filing a false tax return in connection with embezzling more than $140,000 from the company.
U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma Sanford C. Coats announced Wednesday that Renea I. Windham, of Oklahoma City, must also serve three years of supervised release following her prison sentence.
Windham earlier acknowledged embezzling more than $140,000 from Allstate Electrical Contractors from 2010 to 2013 and failing to claim more than $60,000 of that money on her 2012 federal income tax return.
Windham was ordered to repay more than $143,000 in restitution to Allstate and $26,000 to the IRS.
Windham's lawyer says he was disappointed with the sentence but understood the court's rationale.
