Dowagiac woman sentenced after embezzling money from a dentist's office

A Dowagiac woman will spend about half-a-year in jail for stealing money and drugs from the dentist's office where she worked.

That's according to the Niles Daily Star.

Vicki Zachary, 45, was sentenced to 180 days, or roughly six months, behind bars, and five years’ probation, after she pleaded guilty to felony embezzlement and ten charges of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

Zachary admitted to stealing between $200 to $300 a couple times a week over a period of several years while working as an office manager at Burling and Gillesby.

That added up to a total of nearly $150,000. She also confessed to calling in fraudulent prescriptions for drugs and then keeping them for herself.

As a condition of her plea agreement, Zachary also agreed to repay the stolen money.
