Bridgewater Corners Woman Sentenced in Forgery Case



Tuesday, February 06, 2018

Burlington — A 39-year-old Bridgewater Corners resident was sentenced to two years of probation after pleading guilty to a federal charge of forgery, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Vermont announced on Tuesday.

Susan Blaue, 39, was indicted in March 2017 based on allegations that she stole about $130,000 from ABLE Waste Management and other Plymouth, Vt., companies where she worked as a bookkeeper between 2012 and 2015. Prosecutors said she made out checks to herself using the owner’s signature stamp and used company cards for personal expenses.

The United States Secret Service and the Windsor County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case.

In his Tuesday ruling, U.S. District Judge William K. Sessions III ordered that Blaue, who previously lived in Woodstock, also serve three months of home confinement, perform 100 hours of community service and pay nearly $95,000 in restitution.
