INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a central Indiana woman has agreed to plead guilty to wire fraud and tax evasion for allegedly stealing more than $1.8 million from a medical equipment company where she worked as a bookkeeper.

They say 43-year-old Julie Ann Ashman of Fairland cut checks of $3,000 to $5,000 to herself up to 15 times per month over more than 4½ years. To conceal the thefts, she understated the company’s revenue on its ledgers, leaving the owners and its accountant to believe the company was barely profitable.

The company specialized in repairing and refurbishing X-ray equipment.

Prosecutors say Ashman faces up to 20 years in prison on the fraud charge and up to five years in prison on the tax evasion charge.
