Preston woman sentenced for fraud

Cindy Moser, 53, sentenced Monday, March 24, 2014, to spend 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to fraud charges in February.

LOGAN — A 53-year-old Preston woman who worked for a local credit union was sentenced to spend 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to fraud charges in February.

Cindy Moser was sentenced Monday in 1st District Court to spend the next 30 days in jail. Judge Kevin Allen said she would then be allowed to serve the remaining 60 days under work release.

Court records show that between 2009 and 2013 Moser stole money by creating fraudulent loans. She was originally charged in September with 11 counts of identity fraud, forgery, theft by deception and theft.

In February she pleaded guilty to theft, a second-degree felony, and to forgery, a third-degree felony. The other nine charges were dropped.

While being sentenced Moser said she apologized to the victims in this case and her family.

Moser’s attorney said she has sold many of her possessions and refinanced her home in an effort to begin paying back the loans. Judge Allen ordered her to appear again in court to reevaluate the restitution amount in this case.
