RHINELANDER, WI (WTAQ) - A former bookkeeper has been convicted of embezzling over a half-million dollars from her parents' business in northern Wisconsin.
46-year-old Lisa Saykally struck a plea deal this week in Oneida County Circuit Court.
She pleaded no contest to six felony embezzlement charges, and one count of preparing fraudulent income tax returns. Nine similar charges were dropped, but they'll be considered when she's sentenced on January 9th.
The money was stolen from Aqualand Manufacturing of Woodruff, which makes custom lake equipment including piers, docks, boat lifts, and boat tracking systems -- plus other items like stairs and picnic grills.
The defendant's parents own the business.
