Former Horsemen's Bookkeeper At Remington Indicted On Embezzlement Charge - Horse Racing News

Patricia Bessonett, formerly the horsemen’s bookkeeper at Remington Park and Fair Meadows in Oklahoma, has been charged with embezzlement and pattern of criminal offense for her actions while working at those racetracks.

According to a grand jury indictment handed down from the Supreme Court of the State of Oklahoma, Bessonett is alleged to have embezzled more than $15,000 between Jan. 29, 2018, and Aug. 19, 2020, at both racetracks.

The total amount of money embezzled is not listed in the indictment. Oklahoma state code cited in the indictment provides for a maximum prison sentence of five years and a fine of no more than $5,000 for embezzlement of amounts between $1,000 and $25,000.

The pattern of criminal offense charge stems from the allegation that Bessonett “unlawfully and willingly [committed] two or more offenses as part of a greater scheme or plan” related to the alleged embezzlement.

A warrant for Bessonett’s arrest was issued in Oklahoma County on Aug. 31.
