Guam - As part of her plea agreement former Sanctuary Incorporated  accounting assistant Cecilia Naputi pleaded guilty in federal court today. She is accused of defrauding the non-profit organization of close to $13,000.  According to court documents she perpetrated her scheme between April 2011 and April 2013. Naputi would prepare false invoices and email them to different local banks and elsewhere including Texas.  She would then misappropriate the money by diverting them for her own personal use. Naputi is scheduled to be sentenced on September 15th.  Meanwhile Sanctuary executive director Millie Lujan says they take matters of fiscal responsibility extremely serious and they want to ensure their supporters, partners, and donors that substantial controls and measures have been implemented to prevent similar violations against sanctuary. She added that Sanctuary remains committed to provide the best quality of care and service to their clients and the community.
