Former Hendrick employee Laura Cullers Minor, 52, and Sheri Lynn Mitchell, 48, of Cleveland, Tennessee, were each sentenced today to 30 months in federal prison. A federal judge in Lubbock also ordered them to pay $905,166.05 in restitution.
Both women are accused of embezzling money from Hendrick over a five-year period. According to prosecutors, Mitchell, a Tennessee business owner, would send invoices to Hendrick for unprovided services. Minor, a Hendrick employee, would then bill Hendrick.
Both pleaded guilty in January. They will begin their prison sentences by June 5.
