A previous workplace manager for a Greensburg chiropractic specialist was sentenced Monday to house arrest and probation for the theft of more than $60,000 to spend for gambling establishment expeditions and other expenses.
Cynthia Bisignani-Hill, 47, of Greensburg pleaded guilty in October to 2 felony counts of theft and charges of getting stolen residential or commercial property and forgery in connection with accusations that, from June to November 2018, she wrote herself 23 checks with funds that were to be used to pay workplace expenses. In doing so, she forged her employer' name on the checks, authorities said.
According to court records, Bisignani-Hill at first told cops she was permitted to compose checks to herself as a bonus to maintain her as the office manager for Edge Spine and Joint Medical Center on South Main Street in Greensburg. Chiropractor Carl Edge declared he did not approve any bonus offers, police stated.
Investigators stated Bisignani-Hill later conceded she utilized the cash to pay for trips to the casino, personal expenses and other costs.
After Bisignani-Hill's sentencing hearing Monday, Edge said that she worked as his office supervisor for more than 9 years.
“It's an unfortunate circumstance and a failure in humankind and I'm pleased it's over,” Edge said. “I feel this crime is one where there is no real penalty.”
Defense attorney Tim Andrews refuted a possible jail sentence and said Bisignani-Hill now works for another local chiropractic specialist who is aware of her rap sheet.
Westmoreland County Judge Tim Krieger sentenced Bisignani-Hill to serve six months on home arrest as part of a three-year probation term. The judge likewise purchased her pay back Edge and his company an overall of $62,500.
