Theft amount surpasses $150,000

Woman accused with embezzlement indicted on 111 criminal counts

Posted: Tuesday, April 03, 2007

A Kenai grand jury indicted Sheryl Dilley, the Salamatof Seafoods bookkeeper arrested for embezzling last week, on 111 criminal counts including 104 counts of second-degree forgery.

The 36-year-old bookkeeper is accused of forging checks totaling $154,206.77 from Salamatof and two other firms for which she kept books: M & P Trucking and BAS Leasing. The forgeries allegedly occurred between January 2002 and March 26 this year.

Dilley was arraigned in Kenai District Court on March 27 on five felony counts including first-degree theft, schemes to defraud, evidence tampering and falsifying business records.

If found guilty, Dilley could be sentenced up to 10 years in jail and fined up to $100,000 for each of the Class B felony counts — the first-degree theft charge and two charges of schemes to defraud — and up to five years and $50,000 for each of the other Class C felony counts.

Dilley was arrested by Kenai police and was taken to the Wildwood Pretrial Facility.

On Friday, Kenai Superior Court Judge Anna Moran set bail at $20,000 for appearance and $10,000 performance with the requirement that Dilley have a third-party custodian if released.

During Dilley’s arraignment hearing last week, assistant district attorney Angela Jamieson said Dilley’s mother lives in Nevada and Dilley is considered a flight risk.
