Belgrade Woman Sentenced For Embezzling

Posted: Updated:

A 36-year-old Belgrade woman who pleads guilty to embezzling $318,166 from her Bozeman employer was sentenced today in federal court, and the person who caught her is talking only to ABC FOX Montana.

Athalia Venus Allison was sentenced to 56 months in prison and must pay $388,755 in restitution to Big Sky Asphalt.

Allison was the bookkeeper for the company.

Nancy Sebena's husband owns Big Sky Asphalt, and brought her on as a bookkeeper in 2012 so they could possibly close the business and retire.

That's when Sebena started to notice the company's credit card statements were too high considering it was the off season. 

Sebena started her own investigation into Allison around Labor Day 2012.

She said now that Allison is sentenced, she and her husband can move on.

"I'm so glad this is finally over," said Sebena. "We finally have a sentence and I feel we can close this chapter and move on."

Allison plead guilty to two counts of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft May 30.
