FORMER PAYROLL SUPERVISOR PLEADS GUILTY
TO FELONY THEFT

Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Kimberly Ann Whitacre, age 35, of the 7700 block of West Shore Road in Pasadena, was convicted of felony theft by the Honorable Joseph P. Manck in Anne Arundel Circuit Court. Ms. Whitacre plead guilty to stealing $51,182.97 from her former employer, the Allegis Group, Inc., a staffing company headquartered in Hanover, Maryland.

The State’s investigation revealed that from January 7,1998 until September 11, 2003, Whitacre was a supervisor in the payroll tax department of the company. In her trusted position, she had access to employee salary and payroll deduction information stored in the company’s electronic payroll system. For more than five years, Whitacre unlawfully used her system access to manipulate her personal tax records in order to steal money from the Allegis Group. Whitacre’s scheme caused Allegis Group to pay $51,182.97 in tax withholdings personally owed by the Defendant.

Allegis Group discovered the theft and actively participated in the criminal investigation conducted by the Criminal Investigation Division of the Attorney General’s Office.

Sentencing is scheduled for February 6, 2007.
