A Fresno woman pleaded guilty Monday to theft from a vocational college, U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner said.
Sandi Marie Hollifield, 49, worked as a bookkeeper at Galen College, a now-defunct vocational college in Fresno. Beginning in 2008, Hollifield embezzled money from the school by creating fake invoices for supplies and charging Galen College. The school issued checks to Hollifield’s fictitious business, “Total Business Forms.” Between September 2008 and April 2010, Hollifield deposited over $85,000 in Galen College checks made payable to “Total Business Forms.”
Hollifield will be sentenced June 15. She faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
