Shawn M. Dragman, 52, of Glenview, Illinois, has been charged with embezzling more than $186,000 from family owned Hackney's Restaurants where she had been employed as a bookkeeper and formerly as a waitress. According to authorities, beginning in July 2008 and continuing for 2 years, Dragman took cash receipts from the restaurant and deposited restaurant checks into accounts in the name of her and her husband, David J. Dragman, 64, to cover the shortfall. Shawn Dragman, who was arrested on March 17, had been employed by the restaurant chain for about 25 years, beginning as a waitress. David Dragman has apparently not been charged at this time.
