David John Magana, a former advertising director at Raley's, was sentenced in federal court in Sacramento to nearly four years in prison for his part in defrauding the supermarket chain of more than $3 million. Magana will also have to pay more than $2.9 million in restitution.
According to court documents, Magana asked two printing and office supply companies to pay unnecessary commissions to a co-conspirator in order for them to keep doing business with Raley's. The co-conspirator split the commissions fees with Magana, who would then cover up the extra charges on fake invoices from the printing companies. Those invoices were paid by Raley's. Story
