Former insurance agency bookkeeper sentenced to prison for stealing from employer

WHITE PLAINS – A Yonkers woman, who had worked in the payroll department as a bookkeeper for an insurance agency, was sentenced in Westchester County Court on Wednesday to two to six years in state prison. Theresa Casey, 59, previously pled guilty to grand larceny in connection with the theft of almost $250,000 from her employer, Allan M. Block Agency in Tarrytown.

Judge George Fufidio also ordered her to repay $96,535 to the Block agency and over $215,200 to The Hartford, which had previously reimbursed the Block company for part of its loss.

As part of Casey’s responsibilities, Casey was in charge of payroll for the company and managed payments to insurance agents, who worked on commission.

In reviewing commission payment records, company owners discovered irregularities and determined Casey had been improperly paying herself as a commissioned employee in addition to her regular salary from May 2014 to February 2017. She was charged with stealing $246,752.11 from her employer.
