Former office manager admits stealing $338,000 from Buffalo company

Jennifer L. Cadwallader, 39, of Buffalo, pleaded guilty Friday to stealing more than $338,000 from a Buffalo company where she worked as the office manager.

Cadwallader, who worked at the American Paving and Excavating Co. of Buffalo, admitted electronically transferring $338,329 from company bank accounts to her personal credit card accounts from 2009 until last year. In an appearance before Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, she also admitted failing to pay the Internal Revenue Service $108,026 in taxes owed on that money.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross said Cadwallader faces a prison term of up to 20 years and a fine of up to $250,000 when she is sentenced April 13.
