Mother & Daughter From Alabama Accused Of Embezzling $400K From Florida-Based Restaurant Franchiser

Katherine M. Holt, 45, and Heather Bottoms, 24, mother and daughter, respectively, both of Hartford, Alabama, have been accused of embezzling some $400,000 from Bonifay, Florida-based Geneva Enterprises, LLC, which operates six Hardee’s restaurants, where they had been employed. According to reports, Holt, former director of operations at Geneva, who has been charged with one count of grand theft in excess of $100,000.00, apparently was siphoning off franchise royalties with the help of Bottoms, who has been charged with six counts of making false entries on the books of a corporation. The embezzlement reportedly occurred over a two year period. Bottoms has surrendered to authorities, but Holt has yet to be located, as of this writing.
