Florence woman pleads guilty to unlawful credit card use

A Florence woman pleaded guilty Friday to a charge that she used a corporate credit card to make $126,558 in unauthorized personal purchases.

Catherine Cahill, 47, entered the plea before U.S. District Judge David Bunning in Covington.

Cahill was employed as office manager at Edward Connor & Associates, a general psychological services firm. She was authorized to make necessary purchases with a corporate credit card for the functioning of the business, but she also used the card to make unauthorized personal purchases.

Cahill was charged by an information, a written accusation of a crime signed only by a prosecutor. The information charged her with unlawful use of a credit card.

She is scheduled to be sentenced July 31. She faces up to 15 years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, three years of supervised release and possible restitution.
