    Reston Limo employee given three years in prison for embezzlement

    Leonard Sampson

    A former Reston Limousine employee was sentenced July 14 to three years in prison for embezzling over $130,000 which he used for personal and recreational expenditures.

    Judge Benjamin N. A. Kendrick handed down the sentence to Leonard Sampson, 40, address unavailable, on two counts of obtaining property by false pretense.
    Sampson pleaded guilty to the charges on March 13.

    The judge has imposed an additional seven years suspended time on each charge, conditioned upon Sampson’s good behavior and his completion of seven years supervised probation.

    He was also ordered to pay restitution in excess of $130,000 to the victims in this case.

    According to court records, Sampson made charges to his Reston Limousine company credit card between January and November 2012.

    To justify the charges, Sampson created invoices and work orders for parts to be installed on vehicles owned by Reston Limousine. However, the parts were never received or installed. An investigation revealed that all the charges were made to B&L Ducting and Install Master, a business that was started by Sampson.

    Sampson’s business records further revealed that the money charged on Reston Limousine’s credit card was deposited into his B&L Ducting and Install Master bank account, but there were no debits or charges on the account for the purchase of auto parts or materials needed to manufacture auto parts. However, there were purchases and deductions from the business account for personal and recreational expenditures, according to Heather Williamson, spokesperson for the Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney's Office.

    Sampson has a prior felony criminal conviction for grand larceny in Maryland, Williamson said.
