CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A Cedar Rapids woman has admitted defrauding clients of her law firm.

Prosecutors say 54-year-old Susan Hense pleaded guilty on Monday in federal court to one count of wire fraud. She faces up to 20 years in prison.

In a plea agreement, Hense admitted that she falsely represented to her firm’s clients that money belonging to them would be held in trust on their behalf in a bank account. Hense admitted that over three years she stole more than $837,000 from her clients. Hense has since been disbarred.

Prosecutors say she has agreed to pay restitution.
