OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A Booneville woman could spend 20 years in federal prison after admitting she took nearly a quarter million dollars from a Booneville plant.

WCBI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1R52hoA ) 47-year-old Rebecca Crawford has pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud in connection with the theft from Acco Brands of Booneville.

Court documents show Crawford, who was a fleet supervisor in the logistics department, took just under $230,000 from the company. Crawford would write Comchecks made payable to both herself and her husband, Kimble Crawford, and then cash those checks. Comchecks are a form of wire transfer that trucking companies use to provide expense money to drivers while they’re on the road.

Crawford is set to be sentenced in March. In addition to prison time, she faces a $250,000 fine and restitution.
