In recent news, Escondido lawyers filed a lawsuit against an Escondido resident who embezzled $10 million dollars from her employer. Annette Yeomans was found guilty and will face up to 18 years in prison. The court found that she began embezzling money in 2001 and due to the losses the company incurred because of the embezzlement, they had to restructure and let go of employees. She spent the 10 million dollars on gambling and luxuries such as shoes, designer clothes, and flat screen televisions. She confessed to her boss that she had been embezzling money once he began to notice checks going into Ms. Yeomans personal accounts. They made an agreement that she would turn over all of her assets to the company but when police arrived many things were missing. The company is now talking to their Escondido lawyers to see if it is possible to file a suit against her husband who also works with the same employer.
