EASTON, Conn. — A 47-year-old woman from Easton pleaded guilty Friday to stealing more than $250,000 from her Greenwich employer for clothes, travel and children's parties, U.S. Attorney Deirdre M. Daly said.

Dawn Mininberg waived her right to indictment and pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Stefan R. Underhill in Bridgeport to one count of wire fraud.

She faces a maximum of 20 years in prison when sentenced April 8.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Mininberg worked for a company in Greenwich. She provided financial services to the company and was issued an American Express corporate credit card for business purposes. As part of her duties, she prepared expense reports justifying the charges to all of the corporate credit cards, including her own.

In pleading guilty, Mininberg admitted that she charged more than $250,000 in personal expenses to her corporate credit card for clothing and other items purchased at high-end stores, theater tickets, children’s parties and lessons, charitable donations, vacations and the purchase of an $11,000 jungle gym.

Mininberg used her position to hide her expenditure of these corporate funds for personal items, categorizing them as office supplies, meals, meetings or lodging.
