Vermont Woman Allegedly Stole $2.2 Million to Gamble

A woman from the state of Vermont was charged by federal authorities for allegedly stealing $2.2 million from her employer in order to gamble online.

Jennifer Dwyer of Vermont is charged with embezzlement from Northeast Agricultural Sales, where she had worked as a bookkeeper. Dwyer worked at the business for nearly 20 years, but had been stealing for 10 of those years. Overseeing the money, Dwyer worked on managing billing and payroll, giving her the chance to sneak funds when others wouldn't notice.

Dwyer was arrested by the FBI on January 17th, and appeared in court on January 24th, where she pleaded not guilty. If a jury finds her guilty, Dwyer could spend up to 20 years in prison. Additionally, prosecutors are seeking forfeiture of property and money that Dwyer obtained as a result of her theft.
