One Midland woman is paying the price for a 6 yearlong embezzlement scheme.
Tammie Abernathy Stephens, 48, was sentenced to 15 months in prison last week in federal district court.
Over the course of 6 years of her employment at Big Lake Services in Midland, Stephens, who was in charge of finances, used company funds for personal items such as cell phone bills, residential taxes, even a plasma television.
She even went so far as to use the company credit card to pay attorney fees and fines associated with her son's driving while intoxicated charges.
All of her personal expenses added up to over 120 thousand dollars.
