LOGAN, Utah (AP) — A Utah woman has been sentenced to more than two years in a federal prison after she pleaded guilty to fraud in the embezzlement of more than $1.6 million from a meat processing business.
The Herald Journal reported that 53-year-old Christine Gillins pleaded guilty in January to one count of wire fraud after prosecutors accused her of defrauding Lower Family Foods Inc. in Richmond from 2015 to 2018 while she worked for the company.
Prosecutors say Gillins spent the money on vehicles, vacations, sporting events and a home in Mesquite, Nevada.
Gillins declined to be interviewed.
Her federal defense counsel did not respond to a request for comment.
