A Jerseyville woman has been sentenced to jail and been ordered to pay back the money she stole from her former employer. 35 year old Stacy Jo Kanallakan was sentenced this week to 33 months in federal prison and she must also pay back more than $442-thousand in restitution to Telsar Laboratories.
The case was heard in U.S. District Court in East St. Louis and back in May Kanallakan pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud. During her time with Telsar, she served as its bookkeeper and accountant and would make electronic deposits into her own accounts and also make out checks to herself totaling $442,211.91 between September 2005 and October 2011. Following her release from jail, she will have three years supervised release.
