Indiana Man Pleads No Contest In $183K Michigan Embezzlement Case

From WDRB on 5.18.13:

An Indiana man faces up to 20 years in prison in an embezzlement case from Battle Creek.

James Korson is accused of taking $183,000 from Pyper Products. The 56-year-old from Angola, Ind., pleaded no contest to embezzlement in Calhoun County Circuit Court on Friday.

A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing.

Battle Creek police say Korson took the money between 2005 and 2009 while he wa
s working as a controller.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports Korson already is serving a 20-month to 15-year prison sentence after a plea to embezzling money from a Jackson County company, where he worked after leaving Pyper.
