Ephonia M. Green
, 44, pleaded guilty on November 25th to embezzling over $5 million from her
employer, the Association of American Medical Colleges
As part of the plea deal, Green
agreed to pay restitution in the amount of nearly $5.1 million.
According to evidence presented by the government, Green was employed as an administrative assistant for the Association of American Medical Colleges from January 5, 1998 through July 15, 2013 where her duties included processing invoices from the association's vendors.
In a scheme that ran from July 15, 2005 through July 1, 2013, Green
is guilty of creating and submitting fake invoices to the AAMC
in the name of three entities: The Brookings Institution, FCI, and the University Health System Consortium
, also known as UHC.
In doing so, Green
was attempting to collect payment for services that were never provided and without the association's knowledge.
"Today, Ms. Green admitted her participation in a scheme to defraud her employer for her own personal gain," said Assistant Director in Charge Parlave.
