Corporate Employee Charged with Embezzlement and Tax Fraud

Sheila Kaye Jameson, 55, of Blandon, PA, was charged today by Information with mail fraud and filing false tax returns, announced United States Attorney Zane David Memeger. According to the information, Jameson, a Logistics Analyst for EnerSys Corporation in Reading, Pennsyvlania, embezzled approximately $1.8 million dollars from EnerSys Corporation by using a shell corporation, Aries Consulting Group, that she created for the purpose of sending bogus invoices to EnerSys requesting payment which Aries Consulting Group was not entitled to receive. The information further charged Jameson with tax fraud because she failed to include any of the embezzeled income on federal income tax returns that she filed with the Internal Revenue Service. The Information also seeks restitution of the money that Jameson embezzeled and any assets that she may have acquired with the money that she stole.

If convicted, Jameson faces a maximum possible sentence of 295 years of imprisonment, a fine of $4.75 million, a special assessment of $1,900, and two years of supervised release.

The case was investigated by Philadelphia Field Office of the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Floyd J. Miller.

An Indictment or Information is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
