Va. Bookkeeper Accused of Stealing $300,000

May 3, 2010

An Henrico County bookkeeper twice convicted of embezzlement has been accused of stealing about $300,000 from her employer over four years.

Mary Beth Redford of New Kent faces trial June 23 on charges of uttering and embezzlement. She was freed on bond last week.

Redford was hired by an orthopedic practice in 2006 in Henrico. Prosecutors say the 43-year-old Redford created fictitious payments to creditors, then cashed checks written to herself.

Court records show she was sentenced to 10 months in prison after being convicted in 2003 of taking about $6,000 from the New Kent Youth Association. In 1999, she received a suspended sentence for taking about $7,000 from a dentist's office in Henrico.
