Woman sentenced for pocketing salaries of ‘phantom’ employees

A former employee of a Native Hawaiian organization that provides security guards at Pearl Harbor and other Navy facilities on Oahu is going to prison for nearly two years for putting “phantom” employees on the payroll and pocketing their salaries.

A federal judge sentenced Corinne Haunani Cabral Thursday to 21 months in prison for wire and mail fraud.

U.S. District Judge J. Michael Seabright also ordered Cabral, 57, of Kaneohe, to repay the Hana Group the $223,572 she stole from the company from June 2008 to July last year.

Michael Rawlins, project manager of the Hana Group’s security contract, said the company is going to need that money because the contract expires at the end of September forcing the company to lay off 140-160 security guards.
