EASTON, Conn. (WTNH) — An Easton woman has pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud, stemming from her stealing more than $250,000 from her employer.
Officials say that 47-year-old Dawn Mininberg of Easton worked for a company in Greenwich, where she was issued a corporate American Express credit card for business purposes. As a part of her job, Mininberg prepared expense reports justifying the charges on all of the company credit cards, including her own.
Mininberg admitted that she charged more than $250,000 in personal expenses to her company credit card. Officials say she purchased clothing at high-end stores, theater tickets, children’s parties and lessons, charitable donations, vacations, and an $11,000 jungle gym.
Officials say Mininberg used her position to hide her purchases, categorizing them as office supplies, meals, meetings, or lodging.
Mininberg is scheduled to be sentenced on April 8. She faces a maximum 20 years in prison.
