Texas woman sentenced to prison for defrauding employer

mansfield, Texas — A North Texas woman was sentenced to more than four years in federal prison on Monday after defrauding her employer, the U.S. Department of Justice announced.

51-year-old Tanisha Adderley was charged in a $3.7 million wire fraud scheme against the health and human services tech company that employed her.

According to a release from the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Leigha Simonton, Adderley's employer was a company that recovered fees paid by their clients and refunded them using wire transfers to each client's bank account. Adderley was responsible for obtaining approvals and processing those refunds, according to the DOJ.

From 2019 to 2023, Adderley approved false wire payments to business bank accounts that she controlled, the DOJ said in a release. According to the same release, Adderley cashed out $3.7 million in company funds.

Adderley pleaded guilty to wire fraud in November 2023. She was sentenced on Monday to 51 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $3,769,401.90 in restitution.
