A 35-year-old Bowie woman was sentenced Tuesday to 27 months in prison for stealing more than $450,000 from her now-defunct employer, federal prosecutors announced.

Anika Williams, the manager for the D.C. office of Paramount Title and Escrow, pleaded guilty in May to a charge of interstate transportation of stolen money.

Williams admitted that from 2005 through early 2008 she created “dummy” files for fake real estate transactions and then transferred the funds to her own accounts.

Besides sentencing Williams to prison time, U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton also ordered the former office manager to pay $455,548 in restitution to the company.
