A month worked: a woman was sentenced to 2 years in prison for lying in a resume
The court sentenced an 45-year-old Australian to 25 months in prison for lying in her CV to get government work with a salary of 185 000 dollars a year.
Veronica Hilda Terio was accused of fraud with falsification of documents and abuse of public office, writes Fox News. She pleaded guilty to all charges.
On Tuesday, December 3, District Court Judge Michael Boylan sentenced Therio to 25 months in prison, during 12 of which she is not eligible for parole.
Terio has applied for the position of Chief Information Officer in the Department of the Prime Minister and the Cabinet of Ministers (DBC). The application indicated the education that the woman did not receive, the career history was embellished, and false recommendations were given from supposedly former leaders.
“This résumé led to your being interviewed for this job - you submitted the document to the Prime Minister's Department and Cabinet of Ministers, and [this] is the basis for the indictment,” Boylan said in court.
According to the judge, Terio also pretended to be one of those who wrote a letter of recommendation.
“Her recommendations were brilliant about you, but you were actually posing as Miss Best,” Boylan said. "The real Miss Best did not give you a recommendation."
Terio worked in this position for about a month before her mental health deteriorated and her fraud was uncovered.
