STOCKTON, CA - On Monday, January 8, 2018, Mimi Nguyen, 32, of Stockton pled guilty to felony grand theft embezzlement (California Penal Code 487) from her former employer, the Miracle Mile Improvement District. Nguyen was the Executive Director and only paid employee of District.

Nguyen was accused of stealing from her employer in Stockton, the Miracle Mile Improvement District, between January 2014 and July 2017, with an estimated total of $59,800.98 in unauthorized charges to the business credit cards. Nguyen is reported to have repaid $40,000 to her employer.

District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar asks local businesses to maintain strong accounting controls and full insurance coverage to protect their businesses and the jobs these businesses provide for the community.
