UNDATED (WSAU) An Athens woman is pleading 'not guilty' to charged that she embezzled nearly $500,000 from her employer. 40-year-old Michelle Walters entered her plea in Marathon County court yesterday. She's now free on signature bond while awaiting trial.
Walters was the book keeper at a Northwestern Wisconsin Associates, a retirement company in Wausau.
She's charged with seven counts of felony theft from a business setting and embezzlement. If convicted she'd face up to 70-years in prison.
