Michael Sauve was sentenced to 98 months in prison for embezzling $165.,000 from a south metro employer.
Here's the mystery. The story says he was convicted in 2001 for stealing $100,000 from another employer in 1998-99, yet he was then employed by a different company as comptroller from 2002-2008.
Don't these people require bonding for employees handling large sums of cash? If so, how did he ever get hired after a fresh felony embezzlement conviction? Or did the fear of a lawsuit prevent his former employer from mentioning the crime when a reference was sought? Seems nowadays that past employers are afraid to pass along any derogatory information on a fired worker because they have a tendency to sue if it costs them a new job. In many cases, the reference simply says "he worked here" and nothing more.
