A Kalispell woman has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $155,000 from her former employer.
44-year-old Taira Desart reached a plea agreement on July 3 in which she acknowledged taking the money from Jesco Marine and Power Sports over a period of six years. She had worked as Jesco's bookkeeper for 17 years.
The Flathead County attorney's office has agreed to recommend a 10-year suspended prison sentence, along with restitution and fines.
Sentencing is set for Sept. 19.
