Lawton Woman Sentenced in Embezzlement Case

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ A Lawton woman convicted of stealing more than $38,000 from her former employer will serve five years in prison.

Rebecca Hall will also have to pay all of that money back to Pro Team Harley Davidson. Hall appeared in a Comanche County courtroom this morning to hear her sentence. She'd been convicted of seven counts of embezzlement after being tried by a judge earlier this month.

Judge Gerald Neuwirth allowed Hall to make a statement to the court before he sentenced her. She said that she "respectfully disagreed with his judgment" and said she maintains her innocence.

She asked the judge for leniency in her case, because she claimed she has ongoing health problems and needs to take care of her family.  She also told the judge it would save the state $30,000 per year, the cost to incarcerate a prisoner, if she were allowed to go free.
