BATON ROUGE, LA—United States Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux, Jr. announced that RICKY L. MORROW, age 47, of Denham Springs, Louisiana, was sentenced today by U.S. District Court Judge James J. Brady.
In August of 2010, MORROW pled guilty to wire fraud, arising out of his scheme to defraud his employer located in Denham Springs, Louisiana, and one of his employer’s customers. In connection with his guilty plea, MORROW acknowledged that his scheme lasted approximately 18 months, during which time MORROW fraudulently obtained at least 10 wire transfers into his personal bank account, representing funds that should have been paid to MORROW’s employer. These wire transfers totaled more than $390,000.
MORROW was sentenced to a term of imprisonment of 20 months, followed by a three-year term of supervised release. MORROW was also sentenced to pay restitution to the victims of his fraudulent scheme, in an amount to be determined by the court.
This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The matter was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Alan A. Stevens.
