Prison time, restitution ahead for Wabaunsee County woman charged with embezzlement

A Wabaunsee County woman received restitution and prison for embezzling funds from the Bio-Security Research Institute at Kansas State University.


Linda Kay Miller, age 51 of Alma, pleaded guilty to three counts of interstate transportation of fraudulently altered securities during her time as office manager from August 2007 to January 2013.

Miller diverted checks, either by making her a payee or co-payee, and depositing the proceeds into one of her personal bank accounts. Those checks moved through interstate commerce in order to clear.

Miller will spend 60 days in federal prison and repay $14,000.
