Reno Woman Indicted For Failure To Report To Prison

RENO, Nev. – A Reno woman, who was sentenced for bank embezzlement and tax evasion, was indicted today for failure to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons to serve her prison term, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Steven W. Myhre for the District of Nevada.

According to the indictment, Jennifer Ree Campbell, 51, is charged with one count of failure to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons, FCI Dublin, in Dublin, Calif., as directed by the court after her felony convictions. She was found guilty on Feb. 6, 2017, of theft, embezzlement, and misapplication by a bank employee and attempt to evade income tax. United States District Judge Robert C. Jones sentenced Campbell to 30 months in prison and ordered her to self-surrender by May 8, 2017, to the designated federal correctional institution to serve her sentence. However, Campbell failed to report as ordered.

If convicted, the maximum statutory penalty for failure to surrender is 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Any term of imprisonment imposed for failure to surrender must be served consecutively to the sentence for the underlying conviction.

The case is being investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Carla B. Higginbotham.

An indictment contains only charges and is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
