Birmingham woman pleads guilty to defrauding homeowner associations of over $350,000
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) —
Authorities say a Birmingham woman has agreed to plead guilty to defrauding homeowner associations of more than $350,000.
Federal prosecutors announced the charges Tuesday against 42-year-old Jill Rouse Boothby in a statement that says she also admitted to the wrongdoing.
Boothby was a property manager at Boothby Realty, and officials say she was personally responsible for managing 11 condominium associations around metro Birmingham.
But a plea agreement says Boothby admitted creating fake invoices in the name of her design company and submitting them to the groups, which paid the bills.
A statement from prosecutors says Boothby will pay restitution totaling $375,750.
