Defense Attorney: Credit Union Manager Embezzled More Than $800,000 to Save Her Farm

Published: 18 October 2012

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The defense attorney for a Kansas woman accused of stealing from the credit union where she worked says his client is a good person who found herself in a difficult financial situation and made a series of bad decisions to save her farm.

Forty-seven-year-old Pamela Emig of Solomon has a court hearing Tuesday in federal court in Topeka to face one count of embezzlement. She is charged with stealing $817,167 from April 2005 to August 2011 from Enterprise Credit in Enterprise, where she was a manager.

Defense attorney Christopher Joseph says there is a plea agreement and his client accepts responsibility for her conduct. He says Emig did not live lavishly by any standard, and the circumstances of her actions will be explained at sentencing.
