Description: Midland, TX - Jury Finds Former Midland Bookkeeper Guilty of Embezzlement and Tax Evasion Scheme
A federal jury convicted a former bookkeeper on federal charges in connection with a scheme to steal over $2 Million from a local businessman.
Jurors found 52–year-old Kimberley Dale Boyce of Midland guilty of three counts of mail fraud; three counts of wire fraud; three counts of engaging in monetary transactions with criminally derived funds; and, three counts of tax evasion.
Evidence presented at trial revealed that over a two-year period beginning in February 2012, Boyce implemented a scheme involving mailed documentation and wire transfers to syphon money from a Midland County business owner’s bank accounts and place it into bank accounts which she controlled. Boyce also failed to accurately report to the Internal Revenue Service her actual taxable income—totaling more than $2.5 million--for tax years 2012, 2013, and 2014.
Following August 10, 2018 verdict, United States District Judge Robert A. Junell remanded the defendant into the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service. Boyce faces up to 20 years imprisonment for each wire and mail fraud count; up to ten years imprisonment for each money laundering count; and up to five years imprisonment for each tax evasion count.
