Newfields woman stole $250,000 intended for veteran father

CONCORD - A Newfields woman was sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison for stealing $251,534 in benefits intended for her veteran father.

Amy Greeley, 43, was sentenced in U.S. District Court on Monday after she pleaded guilty to one count of misappropriating a veteran's benefits and using them for her personal benefit.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Greeley served as the fiduciary for benefits paid by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) on behalf of her father from September 2002 through June 2011. As her father's fiduciary, Greeley was obligated to use the money solely for his benefit.

From May 2005 through June 2011, Greeley transferred funds from the fiduciary accounts to accounts she controlled and then spent the money on herself. She filed false annual reports with the VA indicating the funds were in the fiduciary account and the reports included forged signatures of bank officials purportedly certifying their accuracy.

Greeley was removed as the fiduciary in June 2011, after stealing $251,534. The VA was reimbursed the full amount before Greeley was sentenced.

The government requested Greeley serve two years in prison, based on federal sentencing guidelines. The court imposed a year and a day to be followed by two years of supervised released.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of the Inspector General, Criminal Investigations Division and prosecuted by First Assistant U.S. Atty. Donald Feith.
