According to CNN, Veronica was sentenced to 25 months after she applied to be a chief information officer position in South Australia’s Department of the Premier and Cabinet.

On her resume, it’s being said that she not only lied about her education and her previous employment, but she also posed as an employment reference so that she could make herself sound better. Not to mention, her LinkedIn profile picture was that of actress Kate Upton.

Surprisingly, Veronica did get hired for the role that was wanting to pay $185,000 USD. Although she only worked there for a short time, she did end up getting paid $22,500 USD.

She was ultimately fired after her mental health became a topic of conversation. the presiding judge on the case Michael Boylan initially wanted to take her mental health into consideration when sentencing her, however, he said that her charges were “serious.”

“you fraudulently obtained employment for which you were paid a large salary and in the course of which you may have had access to sensitive material”  Judge Boylan said.
