TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF MOTION MEDIA PROFESSIONALS WINS JUDGEMENT AGAINST FORMER EMPLOYEE CHARGED WITH EMBEZZLEMENT

DALLAS (December 31, 2015) – The Texas Association of Motion Media Professionals (TAMMP) recently won its legal case against former employee Sabra Young (also known as Sabra Roberts) who was convicted of embezzling $180,000 from the organization over a seven-year period. 

 

TAMMP is a not-for-profit professional organization established 40 years ago to promote Texas crews and vendors to industry professionals in the film, TV, video, and gaming professions worldwide. 

 

Dallas District Attorney Melissa Meyers pushed for a guilty plea requiring $110,000 restitution plus two years probation with a state felony conviction. In a plea bargain, Young pleaded no contest and received a lesser punishment of two years probation and was ordered to pay the organization $110,000 in restitution.

 

According to TAMMP board member and attorney Adam Litwin, "The original felony charge carried a potential 2-to-20-year prison sentence but, as part of the plea bargain, the felony was reduced. If Young violates her probation, she will be subject to the punishment associated with a lower-level felony. Her plea of no contest caused the judge to accept the facts as true."  

 

According to TAMMP board member Lynne Moon, Young was TAF/TP’s administrative director during the years she committed the crimes. "Over the period of seven years, Sabra Young embezzled money by using members' credit card information to pay for goods and services including funding her personal short film, 'DIRTY LAUNDRY.' She made PayPal deposits into her and her son's PayPal account by direct transfer and she used the TAF/TP debit card as if it were a personal credit card, buying large amounts of groceries and paying for dog grooming and nail salon appointments."

 

During the victim's rights portion of the proceedings, Moon addressed Young directly saying, "On behalf of the 987 members of TAF/TP, I have been asked to tell you this: You are not wanted in the film industry, you are not needed and you are no longer welcome. Your actions caused several members incredible hardships. Some lost their homes, some lost their livelihoods and a few even lost their families as a result of the financial stress due to not being able to be found to be hired."
