PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) – A woman who police and prosecutors say stole close to a million dollars from a local dentist was ordered to repay the full amount and will spend nearly five years in prison.
In September, Yvett King plead guilty to one count each of first-degree aggravated theft and aggravated identity theft. Originally, a grand jury charged her with six counts of first-degree theft, four counts of aggravated first-degree theft, seven counts of aggravated identity theft and one count of identity theft.
In court documents, King admits that between April 2012 and Oct. 2012, she “knowingly” stole money from the Downtown Dental Associates. Police say King was a former employee at the dental office.
The total amount of restitution King has been ordered to re-pay is $823,482.43. When she is released from prison, she will be on probation for three years.
The case was investigated by the Portland Police Bureau White Collar Crimes Unit.
King was formally sentenced Tuesday.
