Woman accused of state and county tax embezzlement

A corporate official in Cabarrus County was recently arrested for felony tax crimes. The North Carolina woman is accused of aiding and abetting her corporation to misappropriate over half a million dollars in taxes for the personal use of the company. She faces three embezzlement charges for her alleged white collar crimes.

The corporation that the 61-year-old woman worked for specializes in motorsports equipment. The investigators suspect that the alleged tax crimes began on Dec. 1, 2003, and lasted until Jan. 20, 2014. During the majority of this time period, the woman worked as a corporate official in the company. Also during this time period, the authorities claim that over $400,000 in sales taxes for the state and county was embezzled and used for the company.

On July 4, 2009, the woman was promoted to treasurer/secretary, meaning that she was responsible for handling the corporation's taxes. From her promotion until Jan. 20, 2014, an additional $260,000 was allegedly embezzled from North Carolina Withholding Tax. Exactly how the investigators suspect that the woman committed these crimes is unclear.

The North Carolina woman faces one count of embezzlement of county property and two counts of embezzlement of state property. Even though the woman was the treasurer/secretary and was responsible for filing the taxes for the corporation, it does not necessarily mean that she is guilty of the criminal charges. Nevertheless, as she attempts to fight the charges against her, the more information she has gathered in preparation for her defense, the better able she will be to dispute the accusations and challenge any evidence that the prosecution intends to use against her.
