BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a 28-year-old former bookkeeper for a Buffalo painting contractor has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $200,000 from his employer.

The Erie County District Attorney’s Office says Friday that Robert Coppola Jr. of Buffalo pleaded guilty to a grand larceny charge in State Supreme Court.

Prosecutors say Coppola stole $204,000 between late September 2013 and last mid-July while working as the company bookkeeper for PCI International Inc. Officials say he forged checks to his benefit and conducted unauthorized bank transfers to himself.

Coppola faces up to five to 15 years in prison when he’s sentenced Jan. 15.
