Former employee of S.J. Gas indicted on theft of nearly $100,000

Posted: Updated:
MAYS LANDING - A former South Jersey Gas employee was indicted Wednesday after she falsified invoices of nearly $100,000 to her employer’s college tuition reimbursement program for courses she did not attend, according to the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.

After a 4-month investigation, Laila Milanian, 39, of Berlin was indicted by an Atlantic County Grand Jury for theft by deception charges for falsifying bills of over $98,000.

According to officials, Milanian was enrolled in South Jersey Industries’ Tuition Reimbursement Program at Penn State between the fall semester of 2010 and the spring semester of 2012. During this time, Milanian allegedly submitted reimbursement invoices to her employer for classes she did not attend. She also invoiced for higher reimbursement than she was entitled to in courses that she did attend, by falsifying her grades. The tuition reimbursement program rewards higher reimbursement for better grades. 

Theft by Deception is a 2nd degree crime, carrying a potential penalty of 5 to 10 years of incarceration in State prison.

Milanian's bail has been set for $50,000 cash full.

Milanian has yet to be taken into custody.
