Indiana church's ex-bookkeeper pleads guilty to embezzling more than $364 thousand for personal use


A northeastern Indiana church's former bookkeeper has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $364,000 in church funds.

Beth Boger of Garrett pleaded guilty Thursday to all 10 counts contained in an indictment issued last year by a federal grand jury. Those charges range from wire fraud to tax evasion.
The Journal Gazette reports ( ) that as part of her guilty plea, Boger agreed to repay $364,436 for her conduct and an additional $50,385 in taxes due.
Court documents allege that for nearly five years, Boger embezzled funds from St. Joseph Catholic Church in Garrett and used the money to support her household and lifestyle. She allegedly embezzled the money between June 2004 to April 2009.
Boger will be sentenced at a later date.
