Hampstead woman admits she stole $118K

An East Hampstead woman has agreed to plead guilty to stealing $118,000 from the Massachusetts nonprofit organization where she worked.

Tysen Julian, 33, has been charged with theft for taking money between October 2009 and July 2013, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston.

Julian worked as an administrative assistant for the Cambridge organization.

Christina Sterling, a U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman, said the name of the nonprofit organization was not being released.

Julian was reimbursed after submitting false expense reports, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. Julian also was charged with forging signatures.

She faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. She must pay $118,000 in restitution and a $250,000 fine.

Julian was initially charged with wire fraud as well. If convicted at trial, Julian faced a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison for wire fraud.

The date for Julian’s plea and sentencing hearing has not been set.

The case was also investigated by the FBI’s Boston office.
