From January 2014 through March 2019, Martinez served as an office manager and bookkeeper for a New Jersey based company. Beginning in January of 2014, Martinez used her position at the company to issue fraudulent checks made payable to Martinez or cash and forged the signature of her manager on fraudulent company checks. Martinez converted the fraudulent company checks into cash at bank branches in New Jersey, resulting in more than $1.7 million in losses to the company.
