  • Print.

Federally convicted in 2009, a former bookkeeper for a Catlettsburg, Kentucky, law firm, served time for stealing $93,477 from her ex-employer, Pruitt & Thorner.

Now Ronda Nixon may be headed back to jail, after a federal magistrate judge found that she violated her probation and recommended another 10 months behind bars, reports the Independent.

In addition to failing to make payments toward more than $55,000 in total restitution, Nixon failed to disclose spending over $500, as her probation required. She deposited $24,456 in a checking account, bought a vehicle and went shopping, court records show.

Also at issue was a rental center line of credit. Nixon is accused of pawning two tablet computers she got from the rental center.

An earlier Independent article provides more details.
