A former accounting manager at a Fairfield County company may be heading to prison after admitting to embezzling more than $100,000 from her employer.
Susanna Kurus, a former Connecticut resident, has pleaded guilty in New Haven federal court to one count of wire fraud stemming from an embezzlement scheme that lasted for several years in Stratford.
According to the indictment, Kurus 43, who now lives in Garner, North Carolina, the former accounting manager of the Stratford company, stole $133,870.55 through an elaborate scheme using the company’s financial accounting software.
Using that software, Kurus was able to transfer customer credits to at least six personal debit card accounts and used that money for personal expenses.
Kurus remains released on a $200,000 bond, pending sentencing, which has been scheduled for June 10, when she will face up to 20 years in prison.
