District Attorney Jan Scully announced that 50-year-old Linda Marie Wells of Sacramento was sentenced by the Honorable Gary Ransom to 2 years in prison after pleading no contest to grand theft charges.

Wells was employed as an office manager by Norwood and Associates, a lobbying firm. From 2004 through August 2010, Wells increased her salary by more than $95,000. Wells used the company credit card and made close to $40,000 in personal charges and transferred close to $75,000 from Norwood and Associates bank accounts into her own account and to one of her friend’s account. The total amount taken by Wells was $219,771.

John Norwood, the owner, hired an auditor to check his firms’ finances. The auditor made a comment to Norwood about how well he paid his office manager. This led to the discovery of Well’s embezzlement.
