A Bucyrus, Kan., woman with a history of embezzling hundreds of thousands of dollars from multiple employers was sentenced Tuesday to 22 years in federal prison.
Susan E. Prophet, 46, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, where she pleaded guilty last year to bank fraud and identity theft for stealing $543,000 from Dorfman Plumbing Supply Co. in Kansas City.
After those thefts were discovered and she was fired from her bookkeeping job with Dorfman, Prophet was hired by a skilled nursing facility in Paola, Kan., where she stole about $188,000.
According to federal prosecutors, she used the money to buy multiple vehicles and spent $15,096 at restaurants, $12,743 on travel, $6,703 on electronics and $9,221 at Nebraska Furniture Mart.
As part of her sentencing, she was ordered to pay more than $668,000 in restitution.
Court documents also show that Prophet previously was convicted of embezzling money from at least one employer in Tennessee. Several other companies who employed her before she worked for Dorfman also reported thefts, according to the court documents.
