ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A former employee has pleaded guilty to cheating an upstate New York business and bank out of $134,000.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that while Cortney Vogt was working for SalesSource International in Rochester, she forged 132 checks over a two-year period. The checks were drawn on an account at Canandaigua National Bank.

Prosecutors say the charge carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 8.
