By FindLaw Staff on January 27, 2010 3:59 PM

Defendant's embezzlement sentence is affirmed where: 1) as defendant at sentencing did not tie any transfers of funds listed on a government exhibit to specific cars he sold, and presented no evidence as to the amount of sales commissions paid to other salesmen on cars they sold, the district court properly rejected defendant's theory that his restitution award should be reduced by sales commissions he earned; 2) as defendant made no disclosure that he was paying himself commissions on car sales, and failed to prove these payments were legitimate sales commissions, as opposed to embezzled profits, the transfers of funds from the credit union accounts at issue were part of the credit union's losses; and 3) defendant failed to refute proof that all funds he withdrew without credit union approval were part of the total victim loss caused by his embezzlement scheme.
