Former Bronx manager convicted of embezzlement

A former Sedgwick Group Home manager who worked with the disabled has been convicted of handicapping the organization?s finances by $50,000.

A Bronx jury found Yvette Belmar, 45, guilty of grand larceny and falsifying business records. According to the Bronx district attorney, audit investigations revealed Belmar stole money between January 1999 to October 2001 from the Sedgwick Group Home?s petty cash fund. The audit also revealed the former manager submitted false information on receipts and reimbursement forms in an attempt to justify her withdrawals.

Belmar, who made $37,000 a year, will be sentenced in September and could face up to seven years in prison.
