ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis County woman has been indicted on a mail fraud charge in order to repay money owed that’s tied to an embezzlement conviction.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1bC4Sow ) reports 66-year-old Susan Hampe was indicted Wednesday. The U.S. Attorney’s office says Hampe falsely represented herself as the sole trustee for her deceased mother’s St. Louis County home. Authorities say Hampe took the money from the sale of the home and used it to pay restitution owed to an employer for a 2011 conviction.

Court records show that in the 2011 case, Hampe was working as an office manager of a medical practice when she embezzled $60,000 from her employer. She was sentenced to five years of probations.

The newspaper says Hampe’s lawyer could not be immediately reached for comment.
