The Office of State Attorney Larry Basford announces that on May 14, 2021, a Bay County jury found Kristina Kay Heming guilty of Grand Theft Over $100,000.
Evidence presented at trial proved that between January 2014 and January 2017, while working for Emerald View Association Management, the defendant, who was in charge of the company’s books and finances, managed to steal nearly half a million dollars by giving herself extra paychecks, by using company credit and bank cards for personal purchases, and by misappropriating over $200,000 in cash. Thousands of pages of bank statements, credit card statements, bank account records, as well as the company books, showed that in all, the defendant embezzled over $440,000 from Emerald View Association Management.
Sentencing is set for May 28, 2021, before Circuit Judge Dustin Stephenson, and the defendant faces up to a maximum 30 years in prison. This case was prosecuted by Assistant State Attorney Frank Sullivan and Lynelle Dowe.
