A Columbus woman plans to plead guilty to federal charges related to the theft of $2.1 million from an Edinburgh business.

Gail Greathouse, who serves as the clerk-treasurer of Elizabethtown, has filed a guilty plea with the U.S. District Court of Southern Indiana for six counts of wire fraud and a charge of filing a false tax return, U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett said.

Greathouse took $2.1 million over five years from the Edinburgh industrial molding company LB Mold Inc., where she worked as an office manager and bookkeeper, according to court documents.

Hogsett called the theft a significant case of white-collar fraud.

Greathouse will face up to 20 years and a $250,000 fine on each count of wire fraud, and up to three year in prison on the count of filing a false income tax return in 2006 that grossly understated her income, Hogsett said.
