Missouri Woman Pleads Guilty To Embezzling $103K From Food Concern

Mary Ellen Schorgl, 50, of Kansas City, Missouri, pleaded guilty last week to charges she embezzled more than $103,000 from Associated Wholesale Grocers, Inc. where she had been employed as property and lease administration manager.  According to authorities, over a period of more than 7 years, from January 2004 until May 2011, Schorgl created false invoices for repairs or other services on properties that she managed and had the checks returned to her directly.  Schorgl then fraudulently endorsed the checks for her own benefit and in some cases made the checks payable to J & L Electric, Inc., a company she owned with her husband.  She faces up to 30 years in prison, plus a $1 million fine and restitution for the bank fraud guilty plea.
