(KMOV) -- A Ballwin woman was indicted Wednesday on ten felony charges relating to embezzlement from her employer and failure to report extra income on her tax returns.
The United States Attorney’s office says Sherri Berry, 49, wrote 144 unauthorized checks totaling $379,500 between February 2004 and December 2007, which she deposited into her personal account.
The indictment against her alleges Berry attempted to evade income taxes during the same years.
If convicted, Berry faces up to 30 years in prison for each of the six bank fraud charges and fines up to $1 million. Her four tax evasion penalties carry a maximum of five years and $100,000, per count.
