Bookkeeper Denies She Swindled Firm

November 02, 2002

A 51-year-old Camarillo woman has pleaded not guilty to charges she embezzled more than $365,000 from her former employer, authorities said.

Susan Lynne Martinez is charged with a dozen counts of embezzlement, forgery and money laundering stemming from her five years as a bookkeeper at Advance Tool Corp. in Camarillo, prosecutors say.

Authorities say that between November 1995 and May 2001 Martinez wrote numerous company checks to herself and her creditors and forged the chief financial officer's name.

If convicted, she faces up to 12 years in prison and more than $700,000 in fines, said prosecutors.
