A dishonest bookkeeper who admitted to stealing from her employer was sentenced to more than 5 years prison this week.
Jennifer Lyndi Davey, now 64, was sentenced to 5 years and 8 months prison on Monday July 23, 2012. In her admission of guilt, Davey wrote that she “unlawfully took and stole money from Beckman Properties…by unlawfully completing and passing false or altered checks.” Davey reportedly forged more than 300 checks.
The woman worked as an office manager for Beckman Properties of Solana Beach during the years 2000 to 2007, according to investigators. Davey was “terminated” when her accounting was found to be “not satisfactory,” according to investigator Sergeant Mark Varnau, with the San Diego County Sheriff. Within months, the next bookkeeper discovered the embezzlement.
Jennifer Lyndi Davey admitted two felonies, grand theft and check forgery, in a plea deal signed April 30 of this year; more than 60 other felony charges were dismissed.
The admitted fraudster has promised to pay back $1,487,029.63 to William Beckman, according to court documents. A “restitution review” regarding the balance due to her defrauded employer is set for August 23 in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse in Vista, but the felonious bookkeeper is not expected to be present for this hearing.
