Accounting manager charged with embezzling more than $750,000

From The Post and Courier, “An accounting manager accused of embezzling from her Charleston employer was in court asking for a public defender Thursday, after federal prosecutors accused her of depositing more than $750,000 in two unauthorized bank accounts.

Haynes worked for the company as an accountant and human resources manager. She was “a longtime employee who enjoyed significant autonomy” in collecting money and paying bills, including the payroll, according to an indictment filed earlier this month.

Payments for ancillary services outside of regular management weren’t recorded until the money was deposited, so Haynes was able to divert those checks into the unauthorized bank accounts she opened in the company’s name without attracting notice, according to the indictment. Then, she used Community Management Group’s signature stamp to write checks to herself from the two secret accounts, according to prosecutors.”
