WOMAN EMBEZZLES $452,500 TO FUND JEWELRY BUSINESS – FRANKLIN, WI

According to a criminal complaint filed earlier this month in Milwaukee County, 60-year-old Connie L. Larmon, is facing four felony charges; fraudulent use of a credit card, theft by employee and two counts of filing a false or fraudulent tax return.

Larmon is accused of embezzling $452,500 over three years by writing herself checks and using her employer’s personal credit card. On May 7, 2018 Larmon pleaded not guilty. In September 2017 she apologized for her actions in the following email sent to her employer: “I apologize for everything. I promise to pay back everything.”

In December 2014, Larmon was hired as an office manager. She was in charge of her employer’s personal and professional finances. Before that appointment, she worked for over 20 years at the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office.

In March of 2015, Larmon began writing over 150 checks to herself totaling $187,000. She made transactions with her employer’s personal credit totaling $264,000. Larmon operated another business making and selling jewelry at trade shows. Larmon is facing a maximum prison sentence of 32 years if she is convicted, as well as $70,000 in fines.
