Former IDOC Accountant Pleads Guilty

A former Illinois Department of Corrections accountant has pleaded guilty to embezzling around $77,000 from government accounts, including that of an association formed to memorialize prison workers killed on the job.

Mary Ann Bohlen pleaded guilty Wednesday in Springfield to two counts of mail
fraud and two counts of embezzlement.

Bohlen faces up to 20 years in prison on each fraud count and up to 10 on each
embezzlement count.

Federal prosecutors say the 46-year-old Edinburg woman embezzled money from
various funds over four years starting in 2007. That included some $50,000 from
the Illinois Correctional Employees Memorial Association.

Defense attorney Daniel Fultz says his client is remorseful. He says she has no
previous criminal record and felt financially squeezed because she had to care
for her ailing mother. (AP)
