Ex-bookkeeper sentenced for stealing $2.5M from Hawaii couple


A man who had spent time behind bars on multiple occasions for theft, embezzlement and forgery and was wanted in California and Florida for similar crimes was able to con his way into a job as a bookkeeper for a husband and wife in Hawaii and steal nearly $2.5 million from them.

A federal judge sentenced Frederick Scott Roswell today to 14 years and 7 months in prison Tuesday for transferring stolen money out of state, using credit cards he obtained in somebody else’s name and mail fraud.

U.S. District Judge Leslie E. Kobayashi also ordered Roswell to pay back his victims $2,428,349.
