The former business manager of the Gregory Farmers Elevator in southeastern South Dakota has pleaded guilty to stealing from the company.
30-year-old Melissa Vosika pleaded guilty to attempted embezzlement, altering corporate records and forgery. Prosecutors dropped 11 other counts as part of a plea agreement.
Authorities allege that Vosika stole more than $17,000 from the business between May and September of 2012. She faces up to 25 years in prison and $50,000 in fines when she's sentenced next month.
