A Bridgeport woman is facing
sentencing for embezzling about $94,000 from a travel agency where she
Christina Tartaglio is scheduled to be sentenced
Monday in federal court in Hartford. She pleaded guilty last year to
Prosecutors say Tartaglio embezzled from the travel
agency in Shelton by drafting refund checks from the agency to clients
who were not due any refunds, forged the clients' signatures, endorsed
the checks and deposited them into her personal bank account. They say
she also took commission money and created checks payable to vendors or
suppliers for operating expenses, changed the payee on a check to a
fictitious name, endorsed and deposited the checks in her account.
She faces 15 to 21 months under guidelines but is asking to be spared prison.
