Jazzer­cise em­bez­zler gets 7-year term

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BUSINESS & FARM -

VISTA, Calif. — A South­ern Cal­i­for­nia woman who em­bez­zled about $1 mil­lion from the Jazzer­cise com­pany has been sen­tenced to more than seven years in prison. The San Diego Union-Tri­bune re­ported that Sherri Potts was sen­tenced Tues­day.

Potts was fi­nance di­rec­tor of the Carls­bad-based ex­er­cise busi­ness for about nine years.

Author­i­ties say the Fall­brook woman em­bez­zled to fi­nance per­sonal ex­penses and a gam­bling habit.

The thefts were dis­cov­ered af­ter Potts was let go from the com­pany in 2014.

She was ar­rested last fall and pleaded guilty in March to grand theft, forgery and fraud­u­lent ap­pro­pri­a­tion.
