REDDING, Conn. -- A Redding woman was sentenced to three months in jail Thursday for embezzling more than $400,000 from her employer.

Lisa Landman, 48, of Umpawug Road pleaded guilty in September to wire fraud. Landman, a bookkeeper for an unidentified Connecticut company, defrauded her employer by authorizing and initiating at least 33 wire transfers from the company’s business bank account into her own personal credit card account.

In total, she transferred $410,410.02. from the company’s account to her personal credit card account and used the funds for personal purchases including jewelry, clothing, vacations, spa treatments, fitness equipment and entertainment tickets.

U.S. District Judge Victor A. Bolden sentenced Landman to three months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release. He also ordered Landman to serve the first six months of her supervised release in home confinement.

This matter was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service, the Stamford Police Department and the Connecticut Financial Crimes Task Force. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy V. Gifford.
