A former University of Iowa employee will not serve prison time after admitting to mail fraud. A U.S. District Court judge sentenced 37-year-old Jennifer Whitmore-Meier of Avon, Colorado to three years probation after she plead guilty to three counts of mail fraud.
Court records show Whitmore-Meier was an I-T consultant for the University of Iowa Hospitals between 2003 and 2011 when she purchased 567 items with university funds without approval. She then sold the items on-line for more than $122,000.
She also admitted to buying personal items online and paying for their shipping with university funds.
