Vermont Woman Pleads Guilty To Embezzling $325K

Linda A. Belval, 52, of Morrisville, Vermont, has pleaded guilty to charges she embezzled more than $325,000 from the offices of Dr. David H. Garbutt, a local optometrist for whom she had been employed as office manager.  According to authorities, over a period of nearly 12 years, from 1999 until February 2011, Belval wrote numerous checks out to herself, attempting to mask them as letigimate expenses or payroll expenses.  In some cases, Belval reportedly used a signature stamp to authorize the fraudulent checks.
