Texas Woman Charged With Embezzling More Than $600K

Deborah Ogden Williams, 46, of Kilgore, Texas, has been charged with embezzling more than $600,000 from K.K. Mobbs Construction, where she had been employed as an office manager and bookkeeper. Prosecutors allege that from 1994 until February 2009, Williams made unauthorized check payments, including possibly forged company checks, to pay off personal debts, including a defaulted student loan and make other purchases for her own personal use. Williams has been charged with four counts of mail fraud and five counts of wire fraud.

Update (10/27/10): Williams, now 47, was sentenced to 41 months in prison and ordered to pay $626,718 in restitution after pleading guilty in this case last April.
