Former XM Employee Sentenced For Embezzling


Valencia Person, 54, has been sentenced to 15 months in prison after being convicted of embezzling more than $900,000 from XM Satellite Radio, Fairfax News reports.

Person pled guilty in March; she and another XM employee, Brenda Jones, diverted more than two dozen payments intended for XM's vendors to bank accounts Jones controlled, then changed information in the accounting system to cover up the thefts. Jones -- who left XM in 2006 but continued to receive money in the accounts -- pled guilty in January and is due to be sentenced next week.

Person will also have pay a judgment of $908,924 as part of her plea agreement.
