According to Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore, Wauchope embezzled funds from the country club over a five-year period between January, 2010 and Feb., 28, 2015.

Wauchope, who was the club’s controller, allegedly drew and¬†negotiated checks from the country club’s bank account payable to herself and other third persons. She’s also accused of sending electronic payments from the club’s account to pay¬†personal credit card debts.

The total amount stolen, according to the district attorney, is about $335,000.

“As alleged in the Complaint, this defendant took advantage of her position, as well as her employer’s trust, to divert more than a $335,000 in unauthorized withdrawals to her own accounts,” DA¬†DiFiore said.

Additionally,¬†DiFiore said¬†Wauchope didn’t pay state income tax on the money she stole and failed to file a state tax return in 2010 and 2012.

“Once again, this case, like so many others involving breaches of trust by an employee and having taken place over a long period of time, demonstrates the importance of conducting proper due diligence, especially overseeing employees who have access to finances,”¬†DiFiore said.

The district attorney’s office said¬†Pelham Country Club’s own internal investigation uncovered the scheme and notified authorities.

Wauchope was arraigned on Tuesday and bail was set at $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond. If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.
