January 19, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A Pasadena woman has been sentenced to six months in jail for swindling nearly $106,000 from the Baltimore insurance broker for whom she worked.

Kimberly Jo August, 37, pleaded guilty Oct. 14 to theft, forgery and insurance fraud in Baltimore Circuit Court. Circuit Judge Mabel E. Houze Hubbard sentenced her Friday to five years in prison with all but six months suspended.

August, who specialized in professional liability insurance accounts, submitted invoices, a few real but most phony, to R. K. Tongue Co., her employer, indicating her clients were owed money. Then she cashed or deposited the checks for her own use, the attorney general's office said.
