KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A suburban Kansas City accountant accused of stealing more than $4 million from clients has pleaded guilty to federal charges.

Federal prosecutors in Kansas City said in a release that 42-year-old Thomas Hauk of Overland Park, Kansas, pleaded guilty Tuesday to several charges, including bank fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.

The prosecutor's office says Hauk was an accountant from 2005 to 2015 when he engaged in several schemes to defraud the company he worked for by embezzling more than $4 million from clients' accounts. He then used the money to pay for living expenses, vehicles and jewelry.

Sentencing hasn't been scheduled.
