Julie Mattingly, of Kettle Falls, recently accepted a plea deal on the charges stemming from her misuse of account information in order to steal money from customers. Mattingly was charged with 10 counts of identity theft after she defrauded customers in 2015 of over $24,000 using several multi-level marketing businesses including Tupperware, It Works, Thirty One, and Do Terra.
Mattingly used a Square card reader to process payments for customers under the umbrella name Uptowngirl.
Mattingly has accepted a plea deal of 50 months jail, 12 months community custody and restitution to the Square company. In return, the Stevens County Prosecutor’s Office has agreed not to file any additional charges, according to court documents. Mattingly is scheduled to enter her guilty plea in Stevens County Superior Court on July 27.
