United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner
Eastern District Of California
Former Elk Grove Man Charged With $2.5 Million Embezzlement Scheme
Thursday, December 13, 2012

SACRAMENTO, Calif.ó United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced today that a federal grand jury returned a 20-count indictment charging Vincent J. Doyle, 53, formerly of Elk Grove, with mail fraud arising out of his embezzlement from his former employer of approximately $2.5 million. Doyle now lives in Syracuse, Ind.

The indictment alleges that Doyle was the Chief Financial Officer for a civil engineering firm in Sacramento and El Dorado counties. From 2001 until he retired from the firm in 2009, Doyle used his position to write unauthorized checks from the firmís bank accounts that totaled at least $2.5 million. According to court documents, in order to conceal his fraud, Doyle often entered false payee information into the firmís checkbook register and opened a Post Office box to receive mail associated with his fraud.

This case is the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Lee S. Bickley is prosecuting the case.

If convicted, Doyle faces a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine or twice the gain. Any sentence, however, would be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.

The charges are only allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

I'm sure he will get off. Beyond reasonable doubt is very tough in federal court.
This man surely lives on Wawasee now and has no problem living on stolen money. Live it up Mr Doyle, hell is just around the corner.

A thief by any other name is still a thief. Is it the fact that this is a president set by the politicians in Washington as the "New Normal." If the company owner did this to a client the liberal mlnds would be unrelenting carnivores for his hide. He knew his way down the path he chose so let him suffer the consequense of his choice.

Vince has plead guilty and is being sentenced later this week. His actions led to an overall profit loss for our company and by 2009 most employees were on a 40% layoff, forced to work part time. 3/4ths of the company was laid off before he left. Vince's actions affected all of us. If only you knew what he was doing with this money it would make you sick... You would not have any sympathy, except for his wife.

Skimming off the top didn't just hurt the other co-owners but every employee. This company would give out profit-sharing and end of the year bonuses. I'm pretty certain I'll never see my 0.5% of the 2.5 Million.
