Texan pleads guilty to embezzling nearly $800K

 

DALLAS (AP) — A North Texas executive has pleaded guilty to embezzling nearly $800,000 from a communications firm and buying items such as a hot tub and an outdoor deck.

Prosecutors in Dallas say 46-year-old Marci Johnson of Kaufman pleaded guilty Wednesday to mail fraud.

Johnson faces up to two years in prison as part of the plea deal and also could be required to repay nearly $773,000 to Spaeth Communications of Dallas. Sentencing is pending.

Prosecutors say Johnson was the chief administrative officer for the business communications company and had access to company checks and credit cards.

Investigators say she used corporate funds for personal dining, shopping and entertainment. Prosecutors say Johnson also made false entries in the company's accounting software to help cover her fraudulent purchases.
