Vernal man pleads guilty to defrauding boss

Saturday , November 11, 2017 - 10:12 AM

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah man who pleaded guilty to skimming cash he persuaded his employer to invest in a planned cellphone app has been ordered to pay restitution and placed on probation.

Cortney Blaine Pierce of Vernal will be on probation for four years and had a five year prison term suspended.

The Deseret News reports the 42-year-old convinced his boss to invest $65,000 in an app designed to allow trucking companies to bid on jobs but spent only about a quarter of the money on development. He spent the rest on golf, shopping trips, cellphone bills and other personal expenses.

Pierce promised his employer half ownership in the company and $10 million a year in profits.

He pleaded guilty to securities fraud in July and was sentenced last week.
