Danbury man who embezzled $1 million from employer sentenced to prison

A Danbury man who embezzled more than $1 million from his employer has been sentenced to prison.  51-year old Anthony Teixeira was ordered to 41 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release.  He was employed by Joseph Merritt & Company when he presented sales orders, or test sales orders, to customers as though they were actually invoices.  Customers, believing they were paying the Hartford-based printing company, made payments into accounts that Teixeira controlled.  Teixeira also stole printing-related inventory from JMC inventory and sold it online, but manipulated invoices to deceive the system into thinking the company had sold the inventory.  The Judge ordered Teixeira to make full restitution.
