Massachusetts dental office manager sentenced to 41 months in prison for embezzlement

A woman who worked as the office manager at a Boston area dental practice was sentenced Nov. 17 by U.S. District Court Judge Mark Wolfe to 41 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for embezzling nearly $350,000 from the office, according to justice department.

Yuliya Vaysglus pleaded guilty in June to eight counts of bank fraud, three counts of filing a false tax return and one count of aggravated identity theft.

The justice department said Ms. Vaysglus redirected a little more than $348,000 from 276 of the practice's insurance checks by forging the signature of the practice owner and making them payable to herself from 2009, when she was hired, through the end of 2014. She was fired in February 2015.
