Ft. Lauderdale Office Manager Gets Prison For Thefts

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBS4) — The former office manager for a Fort Lauderdale veterinarian has been sentenced to more than three years in prison for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the business.

A federal judge Friday imposed the sentence on 46-year-old Kelly Lisa Duncan. She’ll be on probation for three year when she gets out and must pay restitution. Duncan pleaded guilty in February to mail fraud.

Prosecutors say Duncan stole more than $647,000 from the veterinarian’s office between 2004 and 2010. She admitted creating payroll checks for fake employees and bogus second checks for real employees, then cashing the checks for her personal benefit.
