Marlborough, MA (CompNewsNetwork) – Today, a Shrewsbury woman pled guilty in Marlborough District Court to stealing checks from her employer and depositing over $18,000 in her personal bank accounts. Tiffany Allard, age 22, pled guilty to Larceny over $250 by a Continuing Scheme. District Court Judge Jonathan Brantsentenced Allard to six months in the House of Correction, with the sentence suspended for a probationary term of two years.  Judge Brantalso ordered Allard to pay $18,142.01 in restitution to her former employer.

In March 2008, the Attorney General's Office began an investigation after the matter had been referred by Allard's former employer, a Marlborough-based computer company. Allard worked as the bookkeeper for the company and was responsible for depositing the company's checks into the company's bank account.  Authorities discovered that between May 2007 and January 2008, Allard took company checks and deposited them into her personal bank accounts.  In January 2008, a bank security employee noticed that a number of the checks deposited into Allard's account belonged to her employer and notified Allard's employer about the suspicious activity.  

Allard was arraigned on September 17, 2008, in Marlborough District Court where she entered a plea of not guilty and was released on personal recognizance.  She entered a change of plea from not guilty to guilty and was sentenced this afternoon.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Nancy Maroney of Attorney General Martha Coakley's Corruption and Fraud Division and was investigated by Financial Investigator Carl Mullen, and Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Attorney General's Office.
