Rebecca Adams Hill, 56, of Athens, Georgia, has pleaded guilty to racketeering charges admitting she embezzled nearly $220,000 from the University of Georgia's Carl Vinson Institute of Government, where she had been employed as a business manager.  According to authorities, over a period of about four and a half years, from March 2005 through September 2009, Hill abused the university's reimbursement system by submitting fraudulent expenses for supplies purportedly purchased with personal funds.  Hill was sentenced to 20 years in prison which was suspended due to her wheelchair bound condition and also ordered to pay  $219,795.69 in restitution.  Hill had reportedly worked for the university for 30 years.
