Woman pleads guilty in Salina embezzlement case

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — A Bennington woman accused of embezzling more than $100,000 from the Salina real estate company where she worked has pleaded guilty.

Forty-two-year-old Janetta Buttery pleaded guilty Monday to one count of interstate transportation of stolen funds.

U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said in a news release that Buttery was accused of taking more than $109,000 while she worked as a secretary, bookkeeper and executive assistant at Realty Associates of Salina.

Authorities say Buttery used her access to the company’s credit cards, bank accounts, books and records to divert the company’s funds to herself, her mother and her husband.

Buttery is set to be scheduled Aug. 22. She faces up to 10 years in federal prison.
