(WICHITA, Kan., AP) — A former information systems director faces sentencing for stealing more than $1.2 million from a company which owns assisted living centers in Kansas and Missouri.
Brent Shryock of Augusta has a hearing Thursday in federal court in Wichita after cutting a deal for a 36-month prison term. His wife, Lori, faces sentencing Monday. Both pleaded guilty to mail fraud.
The indictment alleges the thefts occurred while Brent Shryock was employed as information systems director for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, where he was in charge of purchasing equipment.
Prosecutors allege that beginning in November 2007, the couple created four fictitious companies to submit fraudulent invoices for computers, telephones, and other electronic equipment. Among them was LGR Technology, which stood for Let’s Get Rich Technology.
The scheme continued until about November 2013.
