Greenville Woman Sentenced on Two Counts Breach Of Trust With Fraudulent Intent

Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins states that 42 year old Dorlisa Hacknety, pled guilty on July 10, 2019 to two counts of Breach Of Trust With Fraudulent Intent, value greater than $10,000. The Honorable Alex Kinlaw, Jr. imposed a sentence of twenty years, to be served in the South Carolina Department of Corrections. 

Assistant Solicitors Hunter Blouin and Sylvia Harrison established that between September of 2015 and May of 2017, Dorlissa Hackney was employed as a bookkeeper by a locally owned business in Greenville County. During her employment, Ms. Hackney opened a fraudulent bank account under the business’ name. Ms. Hackney transferred over $300,000 of the business’ accounts receivable into the fraudulently created bank account.

Ms. Hackney then transferred the funds from the fraudulently created account to her personal account. She used the funds to live an excessively lavish and extravagant lifestyle.

While Ms. Hackney was out on bond, awaiting trial, she was caught again taking approximately $19,000 from another local business where she had been employed for approximately three months.

Ms. Hackney used the company’s credit card machine to process fraudulent returns onto her credit card, effectively giving herself a refund for no merchandise.
