San Antonio, TX - The United States of America charged Deanna Bates Wehde with stealing $470000 from a company she managed.

Wehde faces up to 20 years in federal prison for wire fraud and a mandatory consecutive sentence of two years in federal prison for aggravated identity theft as well as restitution to the company. Wehde remains on bond pending sentencing scheduled for November 5, 2020, before Chief U.S. District Court Judge Orlando Garcia in San Antonio.
