Computer consultant sentenced stole 2M from four CUs
PROVO, Utah (4/30/10)--A Provo, Utah, consultant who worked as a third-party consultant for a computer systems company was sentenced Tuesday to nearly five years in a federal prison for stealing nearly $2 million from four credit unions. Zeldon Thomas Morris, 42, who owned a controlling interest in Provo-based Lee & Morris, pleaded not guilty to one count of bank fraud. He was charged with the fraud based on using passwords provided to him in his computer system consultant position to access the credit unions' accounts (Daily Herald April 28 and April 8 and Deseret News April 10). The credit unions are Family First FCU and Alpine CU, both of Orem; Deseret First CU, Salt Lake City; and First CU. Morris was hired as an outside contractor by the Orem office of Open Solutions Inc. His business partner discovered discrepancies in the Lee & Morris accounts in October. 2008, said Daily Herald. Morris also will be on supervised release for five years after serving his term, and he was ordered to forfeit property and pay $1.8 million in restitution.
