The accountant for a Cedar Rapids company has been sentenced to prison for embezzling thousands of dollars from her employer. Thirty-two-year-old Julie Raim had pleaded guilty in October to wire fraud. Raim admitted that while working as the bookkeeper for a Cedar Rapids cleaning company she took more than 87-thousand dollars in company funds.
Some of the money was transferred to bank accounts Raim could access and control. The F-B-I seized almost 10-thousand dollars from three different accounts during the investigation. Raim was sentenced in federal court to 33 months in prison and ordered to make 87-thousand dollars in restitution.
