Ophet Sengchanh Given Probation For Taking Money From Her Employer
A Utah woman will avoid jail time after admitting she took money from a dermatology business in Casper, that she helped set up.
Ophet Sengchanh was given a two and one-half to three and one-half years suspended prison sentence, with 10 years of probation, after she pleaded guilty to one charge of larceny by bailee.
An administrator of Pilot Butte Dermatology, told investigators that Sengchanh worked as an office manager, first in Utah, then helped set up a branch in Casper in 2011.
During that time, she was a cosigner on the owner’s accounts and it is estimated that she spent more than $75,000 on trips, jewelry, movies, online purchases and gave some money to family members.
In the victim impact statement, the owner of Pilot Butte Dermatology, requested that Sengchanh not serve any prison time.
A judge has ordered her to pay restitution.
