A University of California at San Francisco employee accused of embezzling more than $17,000 pleaded not guilty Tuesday to grand theft and forgery charges, prosecutors said. Dulce Tattiana Reyes, 30, was employed as a campus finance manager for UCSF Medical Center’s division of transplant, which deals with transplant surgery patients, according to the district attorney’s office.
Reyes was responsible for all financial transactions with the department and allegedly falsified 34 separate expense reimbursements, including ones for travel, phone bills and personal dog care services, prosecutors said. “UCSF is a publicly funded hospital that benefits the well-being of San Franciscans,” District Attorney George Gascon said in a statement.
“Rest assured that we will hold accountable those individuals who try to cheat hardworking taxpayers.” Reyes pleaded not guilty Tuesday to one felony grand theft charge as well as 16 felony counts of forgery, district attorney’s office spokesman Alex Bastian said. She was released after posting $100,000 bail and will return to court on June 28 for a pre-hearing conference, Bastian said today.
