Mooresville man sentenced for corporate theft

A Mooresville man was sentenced Tuesday in federal court to 33 months in prison for using corporate credit cards to steal more than $600,000 from his employer, prosecutors say.

Darren White, 49, had pleaded guilty in January to one count of wire fraud, according to court records.

Prosecutors said White was employed from 2008 to 2011 as a controller and director of financial planning for a company based in Japan with offices in Charlotte and elsewhere in the world.

According to case documents, White used his position to pay for more than $600,000 in personal expenses, including firearms, diving equipment, clothing, household goods, travel and entertainment. Steve Lyttle
