Jayne Concialdi Imprisoned for White River Junction Embezzlement
The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont announced that Jayne Concialdi, 51, a former resident of Quechee who now lives in Connecticut, was sentenced today in United States District Court in Burlington to 18 months of imprisonment following her guilty plea to a charge of wire fraud. U.S. District Judge William K. Sessions III also ordered that Concialdi serve three years of supervised release following her prison term and pay restitution of more than $129,000. The court directed Concialdi to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on January 6 to begin serving her sentence.
Last July 24, Concialdi pled guilty to an information charging her with wire fraud. According to the information, Concialdi was employed as an administrative assistant to the treasurer of New England Research, Inc., a company in White River which specializes in the measurement and interpretation of rock properties for the energy industry. Concialdi had bookkeeping responsibilities. Between 2011 and early 2014, Concialdi misappropriated about $129,000 from her employer, primarily by using company funds to pay her personal credit card obligations. The defendant also misused company credit cards to make purchases for her own benefit. NERI uncovered the embezzlement this past February.
This case was investigated by the Hartford Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Concialdi is represented by Jordana Levine. The prosecutor is Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory Waples.
