An Indiana woman was sentenced Sept. 11 to nearly five years in federal prison for embezzling more than $800,000 from a trucking company. Once released from federal prison, Lucy Owens, 42, of Hobart, Indiana, will serve one year of supervised release and has also been ordered to pay nearly $820,500 in restitution to James Djuric, owner of Djuric Trucking of Hammond, Indiana. A jury found Owens guilty of seven counts of wire fraud in May 2018, according to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Indiana.
