An Australian woman was sentenced to a minimum of a year in prison after lying on her resume to land a high paying job with a regional government department.
Veronica Hilda Theriault, 46, was convicted of deception, dishonesty and abuse of public office Tuesday, according to CNN.
Theriault submitted a fraudulent curriculum vitae containing false information about her previous employment and education.
“That CV led to you being interviewed for the job — you supplied the document to the Department of Premier and Cabinet and [it] is the basis for dishonestly dealing with documents,” District Court Judge Michael Boylan said during her sentencing, Australia’s ABC News reported.
Theriault also pretended to be a previous employer for a reference check after having an interview, in which she “gave glowing feedback” about herself.
