A Wayne County woman who recently pleaded guilty to bank fraud has been arrested on the same charge for allegedly defrauding another employer.
Cortney Vogt, 37, of Ontario, was charged Wednesday with bank fraud. Her arrest was announced by James Kennedy Jr., Acting U.S. Attorney for the Western District of New York.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a
$1 million fine.
Assistant U.S. Attorney John Field, who is handling the case, said Vogt — who pleaded guilty to bank fraud on April 27 — was re-arrested for allegedly defrauding her most recent employer, ID SignSystems of Rochester.
According to the criminal complaint, Vogt forged checks and caused inflated payroll deposits to be made to her account.
