A former bookkeeper
for a trucking company in Kansas has been charged by a federal grand jury for
stealing almost $100,000 from her former employer.
Sherri L. Nickerson
of Byrnes, KS, was charged with 20 counts of making forged securities, the Wichita
Business Journal reported.
While employed by
D&R Trucking of Pratt, KS, Nickerson allegedly wrote unauthorized company
checks to herself, her husband and her son, totaling $93,924. According to the Business
Journal, Nickerson left the company in 2004, but an audit after she left
found record of unauthorized checks dating back to 1995.
Nickerson faces up
to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 for each of her charges.
