Update: Michigan Bookkeeper Pleads Guilty In $100K Embezzlement Case
Robyn Anne Garver, 39, of Alanson, Michigan, pleaded guilty to one felony count of embezzlement more than $20,000 in a plea deal following her arrest for embezzling more than $100,000 from Windjammer Cove and Marina Development, of Petoskey, Michigan, where she had been employed as a bookkeeper. According to investigators, Garver purchased stamps and phone cards using company checks, selling them on eBay, and shipping them with a company fed-ex account. The scheme lasted five and a half years, from May 2003 to November 2008, according to authorities. She was originally charged last June with 8 felony counts, including criminal enterprise conducting, embezzlement of more than $100,000, two counts of use of a computer to commit a crime and four counts of "uttering and publishing." Garver is due to be sentenced on March 15th, when she faces up to 10 years in prison, plus restitution.
