Oregon Woman Pleads Guilty To Embezzling $848K

Rhonda M. Milligan, 41, of Lebanon, Oregon, has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $848,000 from the accounts of an executive of ENTEK Manufacturing, Inc., where she had been employed as a bookkeeper.  According to authorities, over a period of about 5 1/2 years, from December 2005 to July 2011, Milligan siphoned funds from the personal accounts of James Young, the company's former CEO, by writing checks for her own benefit.  Originally it was thought that Milligan had embezzled directly from the company itself.  However, the company issued a statement clarifying that the monies she had embezzled were from personal accounts, not company accounts.

Update (2/8/13): Milligan, now 42, was sentenced to 27 months in prison and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $848,156.
