Woman found guilty in embezzlement
A dentist’s receptionist faces up to 25 years in prison after being convicted of five counts of embezzlement by a Carson City jury.
Sentencing for Jill Jeter, 46, is set for April 15.
The jury spent a little more than three hours on Thursday discussing the charges before returning with five guilty verdicts.
According to Deputy District Attorney Jason Woodbury, Jeter was accused of intercepting cash payments to the dentist’s office where she worked between Sept. 1, 1999 and Dec. 22, 1999.
He said the prosecution proved she would take payments from clients and then not enter them into the dentist’s accounting system.
A summons was issued for Jeter to appear in court and she was arraigned on May 22, 2000.
In addition to paying an undetermined amount of restitution, Jeter could also face up to $50,000 in fines. Embezzlement carries a sentence of one-to-five years in prison.
