Vegas Couple Guilty Of Credit Union Embezzlement

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service says a 37-year-old former Las Vegas credit union manager admitted embezzling funds, and she and her husband acknowledged failing to report the income on their federal tax return.

The IRS said Friday that Mireya Guadalupe Gonzalez could face up to 33 years in federal prison and fines topping $1 million after pleading guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles to embezzling funds from Sharebuilders Federal Credit Union.

Gonzalez and 35-year-old Jorge Luis Gonzalez each pleaded guilty to a false income tax return charge for the 2006 tax year.

Jorge Gonzalez could face up to three years in federal prison and $100,000 in fines. Sentencing is Sept. 26.

A plea agreement says the couple received almost $1.2 million in unreported income from 2005 to 2007.
