Embezzler pleads guilty
DETROIT (AP) — A woman who worked for the city of Detroit has pleaded guilty to stealing $265,000.
Masharn Franklin worked in Detroit’s audit and payroll department where she was in charge of garnishing money from the paychecks of city employees. The government says she came up with a scheme to embezzle money by issuing checks in the names of her relatives.
The FBI so far has recovered $58,000. Franklin pleaded guilty Tuesday and will get her sentence on Aug. 15.
