Littleton woman pleads guilty in $46G bank fraud case

CONCORD - A Littleton woman pleaded guilty in federal court to bank fraud, the U.S. Attorneys Office announced on Monday.

According to court documents and statements made in court, between 2018 and October 2021, Katie Ricker, 22, was employed in various positions by a company in Sugar Hill. In or about October 2021, Ricker stole blank checks belonging to the company and wrote fraudulent checks addressed to herself, her co-defendant William Hill, and others to transfer funds from the company's account to her joint bank account with Hill.

Ricker forged the signature of the employee authorized to sign on the company's account.

The defendants were caught on camera cashing some of the fraudulent checks that totaled more than $46,000 that was stolen from the company.

Ricker is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 29. Hill pled guilty on June 27.
