Update: California Woman Pleads Guilty To Embezzling $1.1 Million From Food Concern

Lisa K. Sackie, 47, of Solvang, California, pleaded guilty to charges she embezzled some $1.1 million from Santa Barbara Bay Foods where she had been employed as vice president and controller.  According to authorities, over a period of nearly 6 years, from 2004 to 2010, Sackie issued checks to herself and her creditors for her own benefit.  According to reports, some of the monies Sackie misappropriated were directed to Sundancer Productions and a "close companion", both affiliated with the video production company based in Clinton, New Jersey.  This entity appears to be owned by a Jimmy Whip, according to his LinkedIn page.  Sackie faces up to 40 years in prison on the mail fraud charges she plead to.
