Victoria Man, Murray Carson Imprisoned for Defrauding Employer

A 48-year-old Victoria man has been ordered to federal prison following his convictions on 10 counts of wire fraud, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick. Murray Wade Carson pleaded guilty July 2, 2018.

Today, Senior U.S. District Judge John Rainey handed Carson a 27-month sentence to be immediately followed by three years of supervised release. At the hearing, additional testimony was provided that described how Carson used sophisticated means to cimmit is fraud. In handing down the sentence, the court noted that it was incredible that the crime went on for eight years until an auditor figured it out. “That was the only thing that stopped you,” said Rainey.

At the time of his plea, Carson admitted he devised a scheme to defraud his employer by charging his employer for the purchase non-existent goods and products from the Kirby Taylor Company (KTC). Carson had set up KTC and concealed that information from his employer.

Carson admitted he submitted invoices from KTC for nonexistent goods, which he purchased using his employer issued credit card. He then used his home computer to submit charges for these nonexistent goods.

The scheme lasted from approximately 2007 through June 2015.

Carson was permitted to remain on bond and voluntarily surrender to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

The FBI conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney John Braddock is prosecuting the case.
