Memorial Sloan-Kettering worker embezzled $1.2 million in office supply scam

HP Photosmart e-All-in-One Printer - D110a Editors' rating: 3.5 out of 5 The good: The HP Photosmart e-All-in-One D110a's interactive touch screen adds Web connectivity to the standard print, copy, and scan functions, at a lower price than other HP ePrint-connected devices. The bad: Print speeds are languid and the smaller paper input capacity makes it a hassle to refill for bigger households. You also must have a wireless connection to use the D110 to its fullest potential. The bottom line: We wouldn't recommend it for high-output households or large offices, but the HP Photosmart D110a provides inexpensive access to HP's clever new ePrint and Web-connected apps.

Toner for the officer printer is at the heart of an embezzlement case at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - A former New York City hospital worker who admitted embezzling $1.2 million from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center by ordering printer toner, stealing it and then reselling it has been sentenced to 7 ½ years in prison.

Who knew toner for the office printer was that precious?

In a deal with prosecutors, Marque Gumbs pleaded guilty in July to grand larceny. As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors recommended a sentence of 2 ½ to 7 ½ years in state prison. Gumbs could have received up to 25 years in prison if he'd been convicted at trial.

Gumbs was sentenced on Monday.

As part of his sentence, he must forfeit some of the items he purchased through the scam. The Wall Street Journal says they include a BMW, two laptops, a digital camera, an iPod and two jewel-encrusted watches.
