Former Accountant For New Hampshire Newspaper Pleads Guilty To Embezzling $200K

Lisa Fern Grass, 46, formerly of Boscawen, New Hampshire, but now of Lambert Lake, Maine, pleaded guilty to one count of felony theft in connection with her embezzlement of some $200,000 from the Concord Monitor newspaper where she had been employed as an accountant. Grass admitted that she began stealing from the newspaper in 1999 shortly after she was hired by writing checks disguised as legitimate vendor expenses and depositing the proceeds for her own benefit. The scheme lasted approximately 5 years until 2004 when it was discovered and she was fired. Grass was subsequently indicted in November 2007. She faces up to 15 years in prison.
