Virginia Woman Pleads Guilty In $151K Embezzlement Case

Faye G. Barksdale, 48, of Chesterfield, Virginia, pleaded guilty last week to charges she embezzled some $151,000 from Drytac Corp., where she had been employed as an accounts payable clerk for nearly a decade. According to prosecutors, Barksdale engaged in a false-invoice and check-forgery scheme that lasted at least 5 years and dated back to 2003. Her scheme was discovered by a co-worker when she left a counterfeit check on a copy machine when she left for vacation last year. Barksdale is to be sentenced July 15 and faces up to 20 years in prison, plus fines and restitution.
