Cedar Rapids woman going to prison for stealing money from employer


A Cedar Rapids woman will spend more than four years in federal prison for stealing money from her employer.

The United States Attorney's Office says 33-year-old Sarah Ann Godsey pleaded guilty in March to stealing more than $100,000 by using her employer's checking account and using credit cards belonging to her supervisors without their permission.

The courts say Godsey also admitted to using someone else's name, date of birth and social security number as a part of her credit card fraud.  They also say that at the sentencing hearing, they found that she abused a position of private trust and obstructed justice during the course of the investigation of her criminal conduct.

Godsey pleaded guilty to one count of bank fraud, one count of access device fraud, and one count of aggravated identity theft.

Godsey was sentenced to four years and six months in federal prison and was ordered to pay $120,189.22 in restitution. She will spend five years on supervised release after her prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Godsey has been released on bond and is ordered to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on a date to be determined.
