Woman Pleads Guilty in $109,000 Salina Embezzlement

KSAL Staff - May 24, 2016 8:44 am

Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the Kansas Corporation Commission and its commissioners individually for allegedly violating the Kansas Open Meetings Act (KOMA).

A Bennington woman accused of embezzling more than $100,000 from the Salina real estate company where she worked has pleaded guilty.

According to U.S. Attorney Tom Beall’s office, the Ottawa County woman pleaded guilty Monday. Janetta Marie Buttery, 42, Bennington, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of interstate transportation of stolen funds. A criminal information filed in March alleged Buttery embezzled more than $109,000 from her employer.

In her plea, Buttery admitted the crime occurred while she worked as a secretary, bookkeeper and executive assistant at Realty Associates of Salina. Buttery used her access to the company’s credit cards, bank accounts, books and records to divert the company’s funds to herself, her mother and her husband.

Sentencing is set for Aug. 22. She faces a penalty of up to 10 years in federal prison, a fine up to $250,000 and restitution.

Hmmmm…not proofreading headlines now?

“If you want the story and you want it partially right, KSAL.com” Might as well pull that commercial off-the-air because you have clearly not been living up to that lately. I realize it’s human error, but I would think you would proofread everything before you publish it, especially a headline that’s in your feature spot! How do you not proofread a headline?
