Law firm office manager cops to falsifying tax return

SACRAMENTO — A Herald woman pleaded guilty to computer fraud and filing a false tax return in federal district court Tuesday.
According to Assistant United States Attorney Matthew D. Segal, who is prosecuting the case, Regina Schenck, 46, worked in a law firm as an office manager. During her employment, she used her position to steal approximately $1.3 million from the firm.

Schenck is scheduled to be sentenced by Senior U.S. District Judge Lawrence K. Karlton on Nov. 10 at 9 a.m. The maximum penalty for computer fraud is five years imprisonment and a fine of $250,000. The maximum penalty for filing a false tax return is three years imprisonment and a fine of $100,000.

However, the actual sentence will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.

This case is the product of an extensive investigation by the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
