On March 13, 2018, in the Circuit Court for Queen Anne’s County, Stephen C. Greenberg, aged 43, last known address Annapolis, Maryland, was sentenced to 5 years to the Division of Correction of Maryland, all after 28 days credit for time served for his conviction for embezzlement from Schuman Cleaning Service.
Greenberg pled guilty before the Honorable Thomas G. Ross, Circuit Court Judge for Queen Anne’s County. The case was prosecuted by Lance G. Richardson, State’s Attorney for Queen Anne’s County. Mr. Greenberg’s conviction was based upon a series of thefts perpetrated against his employer dating back to 2012 and 2013. The case had been in warrant status since Greenberg’s failure to appear back in January of 2015. The facts of the case consisted of Mr. Greenberg using a company issued credit card for unauthorized fuel purchases. Greenberg also used his company vehicle for unauthorized trips which were not in the course of his employment. An internal investigation by Schuman Cleaning Service revealed that Greenberg often used his fuel credit card on days he wasn’t working. He also accumulated mileage on his company vehicle on many days he was not working and when he was not authorized to use the vehicle. The amount of the embezzlement totaled approximately $10,000.00. Mr. Greenberg had previously paid $4,000.00 towards restitution before the previous trial date but then failed to appear and was a fugitive until this year. The remaining balance of $6,000 was ordered to be paid by Greenberg during 30 months of supervised probation.
Greenberg admitted he was suffering from a substance abuse problem and that was why he failed to appear for his original trial date. He had a minor record before this offense and he was ordered to have drug testing and treatment while on probation. Richardson thanked the Office of the Sheriff for Queen Anne’s County for their investigation of the crime. Matt Connell, Assistant Public Defender, represented Mr. Greenberg.
