The 34-year-old Atlantic Highlands resident was also ordered by a Superior Court judge in Freehold to reimburse the publishing and advertising firm Ansorge Unlimited to the tune of $291,000.
Here’s the announcement, provided by department spokesman Lieutenant Steve Dollinger:
On March 4, 2010 police received a report from Doctor Diana Trusky’s Dermatologist Office located in the Lincroft section of Middletown in reference to forged checks and missing cash receipts. Dfc Lawrence Hall was assigned to the case and conducted an eight month investigation into the matter which entailed obtaining and reviewing numerous documents.
As part of a plea bargain, Rebecca Cirillo, 34, of Atlantic Highlands, admitted embezzling the funds from the publisher of Red Bank Red Hot magazine over the course of more than two years. She also pleaded guilty filing a fraudulent tax return.
Prosecutors are asking that Cirillo get five years in prison when sentenced in January by Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Richard W. English.
