Former Campbell employees sentenced for fraud

Two former Campbell Soup Company employees have received federal prison sentences after pleading guilty to wire fraud, according to a report by Sherman-based television station KXII, a CBS affiliate.

Jana Rader, a former purchaser for Campbell, and Mary Lynn Mead, a former administrator, pled guilty on April 18, the report said. 

Court documents say both used Campbell money to purchase items for themselves for several years, according to KXII.

Rader was sentenced Thursday to 21-months and was ordered to pay more than $145,000 in restitution, the report said. She'll report to a Fort Worth prison March 3, the report said. Mead reported to a Fort worth prison in October and will serve a 15 month sentence and pay back $119,000, the report said.
