HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman who served more than three years in prison for embezzling about $1.7 million from a law firm where she worked as a paralegal could face more time behind bars for allegedly violating terms of her probation.
Federal prosecutors are scheduled to go before a judge Thursday to ask that Patricia Baddeley be sent back to prison for gambling. Prosecutors are also asking that she forfeit more than $50,000 in casino winnings.
She was convicted in 2010 of mail fraud and filing a false tax return for stealing the money from a South Windsor law firm and using it to fuel a gambling habit.
Federal prosecutors say she has since visited casinos multiple times, including the day after she was in court for allegedly stealing from another employer.
