As a secondary scheme Flemens is accused of writing forged and unauthorized checks on the company account for other amounts totaling $189,878.00, for a grand total in excess of $361,690.00. The third felony charge pertains to Falsification of the Corporate Books of the employer by making a series of false accounting entries and omissions pertaining to her theft transactions that rendered the accounting records of the company inaccurate. In addition to these felony counts, sentencing enhancements are alleged, that if found true, would prohibit a grant of probation and result in a state prison sentence of up to 8 years 4 months. She is currently being held in San Joaquin County Jail.
