An Augusta man has admitted to stealing more than $1.2 million while working for a company that owns assisted living centers in Kansas and Missouri. KMUW’s Deborah Shaar reports...

A court filing Thursday shows Brent Shryock plead guilty to mail fraud in a deal with prosecutors for a proposed 36-month prison sentence.

Shryock worked as an information systems director for Wichita-based Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America and was in charge of purchasing equipment.

Investigators say Shryock and his wife created four fictitious companies to submit fraudulent invoices. Among them was LGR Technologies, which stood for Let's Get Rich Technologies.

Shryock has also agreed to forfeit real estate, vehicles, and other property.

His sentencing is set for August 6th.

His wife, Lori Shryock, is scheduled for a change-of-plea hearing on May 22.
