Hawaii dental employee sentenced for embezzlement

A Honolulu woman has been sentenced to 30 months in prison and ordered to pay nearly $197,000 in restitution for stealing from her employer.

U.S. District Court Chief Judge Susan Oki Mollway sentenced Linda L.L. Chun, 50, of Honolulu this week after Chun pleaded guilty to a 17-count indictment that included bank fraud, mail fraud, embezzlement, and theft from an employee pension benefit plan.

Chun worked for a Honolulu dentist and gained unauthorized access to financial accounts from 2004 to 2007, according to prosecutors. She forged the dentist's convenience checks, forged a renewal application for a bank home equity line of credit, used the mail to obtain a fraudulent disbursement of money from an employee pension benefit plan, and forged bank withdrawal slips, according to information produced in court.
