Woman pleads guilty to $64,000 theft from New Iberia company
LAFAYETTE - A Breaux Bridge woman has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $64,000 from a New Iberia company.
U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley says in a news release Friday that 66-year-old Joan C. Edgar pleaded guilty Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Patrick Hanna to one count of wire fraud.
Finley said the plea will become final when accepted by U.S. District Judge Dee D. Drell.
Edgar worked as an office manager for the company, which was not named, and stole $64,860. Authorities say she hid her actions by altering company records.
Edgar faces up to 20 years in prison, restitution and a $250,000 fine. A sentencing date has not been set.
