Easton woman sentenced to year in prison for credit card fraud

(8/24/16)

EASTON - An Easton woman will spend the next year in prison for stealing close to $380,000 from her employer.

Federal prosecutors say 48-year-old Dawn Mininberg was sentenced Tuesday to 12 months in prison followed by a year of house arrest.

Mininberg pleaded guilty earlier this year to using a corporate credit card for hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal purchases.

Investigators say she hid the fraud for two years by claiming the purchases were business expenses.

Once released from prison, Mininberg will have to pay back the money.
