Employee Sentenced 7 Years for Huge ID Theft

Janice M Nieman embezzled more than $1 million from a Wisconsin not-for-profit health services organization where she was a payroll specialist.

She did this by stealing the identities of 848 registered nurses and creating phantom paid time off which she deposited in her bank account. Nieman was sentenced to seven years in prison.

"...from 2004 to April 2013, Nieman used her access to employee payroll information to concoct and orchestrate an elaborate embezzlement scheme."
