Woman Admits Stealing $1.2M From Assisted Living Center
An Augusta, Kansas, woman has admitted her role in the theft of more than $1.2 million from a company which owns assisted living centers in Kansas and Missouri.
Lori Shryock pleaded guilty to mail fraud Monday in federal court. Sentencing is Aug. 24.
In exchange for her plea, prosecutors agreed to recommend a sentence at the low end of the guideline.
Her husband, Brent Shryock, was the former information systems director for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, where he was in charge of purchasing equipment. He pleaded guilty last month to mail fraud in a deal with prosecutors for a proposed 36-month prison sentence.
Prosecutors say the couple created four fictitious companies to submit fraudulent invoices. Among them was LGR Technology, which stood for Let's Get Rich Technology.
