LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A Lawrence woman faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to embezzling between $750,000 and $1 million from her employer.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom announced in a news release Tuesday that 58-year-old Sharon Ann Holladay pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement from Westheffer Company, which manufactures and sells agricultural chemical spray equipment.

Holladay was office manager and transferred money from the operations account to a petty cash fund she controlled. She also gave herself unauthorized bonuses and commissions and made unauthorized purchases with the company’s credit card.

Sentencing has not been scheduled.
