A Portland, Oregon, woman has pleaded guilty to embezzling $850,000 through a scheme that transferred unused money in flexible spending accounts to her private accounts.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Idaho says 45-year-old Sara Curnow pleaded guilty Wednesday to wire fraud in U.S. District Court in Boise, Idaho.
Authorities say Curnow worked for Pinnacle Pension Services headquartered in Boise. Pinnacle handled flexible spending accounts for St. Luke's Health System. Employees deposited pre-tax funds into accounts and Pinnacle approved disbursements.
