KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - The former controller of a Kansas company has been ordered to serve a year and three months in federal prison after pleading guilty to embezzling more than $135,000 from his employer.

Forty-three-year-old Alan Wenk was sentenced Monday in Kansas City, Kansas. That’s where he pleaded guilty in February to two counts of bank fraud.

Wenk has admitted the crimes happened while he was working as regional controller and corporate accounts payable manager for Performance Contracting Group Inc. in Lenexa.

Prosecutors say Wenk caused the company to issue 20 fraudulent checks to him and business entities he controlled.

PCG has 50 offices throughout the U.S.
