Connie L. Larmon, formerly known as Connie L. Huggins, plead guilty in Milwaukee County court last week to two felony counts of Filing a False tax return, one felony count of Theft by Employee, and one felony count of Fraudulent use of a Credit Card. Larmon, a Franklin resident, was sentenced to three years in prison and seven and a half years of probation for charges relating to tax evasion and embezzlement of $452,000 from her employer. She was also sentenced to $406,000 in court ordered restitution to her former employer and $20,275 to the state of Wisconsin.
According to the criminal complaint, Larmon was an office manager for a local business from 2014 to 2017. During this time, she embezzled $452,000 from her employer. Larmon stated that she did this to fuel a drug addiction; however, she purchased thousands of dollars’ worth of clothing and costume jewelry. Additionally, Larmon failed to report the embezzled income on her 2015 and 2016 Wisconsin income tax returns. Therefore, she evaded $20,275 in state taxes.
The criminal charges Larmon faced were filed by the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office following an investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue’s Office of Criminal Investigation and the Greenfield Police Department.
