Ex-bursar for Oklahoma City Community College is sentenced in embezzlement
Brandi J. Henson, 49, of Yukon, was ordered to repay Oklahoma City Community College nearly $400,000 she admitted stealing by accessing school's financial accounts while working as a bursar for them.
A former Oklahoma City Community College bursar was sentenced Wednesday to 27 months in a federal prison and ordered to repay nearly $400,000 she admitted embezzling from the school, officials said.
Brandi J. Henson, 49, of Yukon, pleaded guilty in August to federal wire fraud and agreed to pay restitution as part of her plea agreement with federal prosecutors.
U.S. District Judge David L. Russell also sentenced Henson to three years of supervised release and ordered her to repay more than $398,315. She must report to federal prison Feb. 18, officials said.
In plea papers filed in federal court in Oklahoma City, Henson admitted her guilt: “I am guilty and do not want to make this any more costly or painful for anyone than it already is,” she wrote.
Neither Henson nor her attorney could be reached for comment Wednesday.
Between 2004 and 2011, Henson used her access as a bursar to the college's financial accounts to steal the money. Prosecutors said in a statement that Henson paid off more than $398,000 in personal credit card bills with OCCC refunds she posted to her accounts.
