JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ala. -- A former bookkeeper at a Jefferson County roofing business will plead guilty to three counts of fraud connected to the theft of nearly $1.2 million dollars from her employer.
Federal court records filed Wednesday show Robbie Treiber agrees to plead court and pay restitution to Quality Architectural Metal and Roofing. Treiber worked at the business from 1996 until 2017.
Court records say the embezzlement started when she began working for the company by taking checks provided by customers in payment for goods and services and depositing them into her personal bank account.
Treiber embezzled $1,195,066.10 from 2010 until 2017 by depositing 495 checks meant for her employer into her own account, Robbier Treiber D.B.A Quality Roofing Services and/or Robbie Treiber D.B.A. Quality Roofing in Architectural Metal Services.
Court records show the U.S. Attorney's office will seek a sentence on the low end of government guidelines, since Treiber is taking responsibility for her actions.
She faces a maximum punishment of up to 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 followed by up to three years of supervised release.
Treiber will be arraigned in federal court in Birmingham on February 14.
