A Lubbock woman defrauded Frank Brown Auto and Truck Ranch out of nearly $700,000. Now, a judge is ordering her to pay back the money, and go to prison.
On Friday, Judge Sam Cummings sentenced Mary Ann Urdiales to five years in federal prison for mail fraud. Urdiales admitted to using mail, wire and bank fraud schemes to defraud Frank Brown while she was working in accounts receivable from January 1998 through 2005. During those seven years, Urdiales says she diverted funds for her personal use, mailed forged Frank Brown checks to pay her credit cards, and took cash from several departments.
