KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The former business manager at a Kansas City doctor’s office has been sentenced for embezzling $170,000, a crime that forced her employer to declare bankruptcy.
Federal prosecutors announced Wednesday that 57-year-old Eileen Kisner, of Kansas City, was sentenced to two years in federal prison without parole. She also must repay $170,232. Kisner pleaded guilty in November to mail fraud.
She was the business manager at Brookside Family Medicine from 2002 to 2010. Prosecutors say she used her employer’s credit cards for her personal expenses and those of her husband. Shortly before she was fired, Kisner fled to Europe, where she lived for three years before being arrested in Philadelphia in February 2013.
Her boss, Dr. Darren Killen, had to declare bankruptcy and sell his business.
