Rosalind Deborah Wright, 50, of Fredericksburg, Virginia, has pleaded guilty to six embezzlement counts, admitting she stole more than $355,000 from a Spotsylvania dentist for whom she had been employed as an office manager. Authorities alleged that Wright's thefts occurred over a ten year period between 1998 and 2008 wherein she took insurance payments meant for the dentist and deposited them into her own accounts. When confronted by police, Wright, who was indicted last February on 11 felony counts, reportedly admitted to the thefts. Sentencing is scheduled for July 20th where she faces as much as 120 years in prison.
