Gail Greathouse, the former clerk-treasurer for Elizabethtown who pleaded guilty to federal charges tied to the theft of $2.1 million from an Edinburgh business, will be sentenced in federal court today.
Greathouse was brought to court on six counts of wire fraud and one count of filing a false income-tax report, charges that were revealed in early January by Joe Hogsett, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana.
An investigation by the U.S. Secret Service, the Internal Revenue Service and the Indiana State Police found that she embezzled more than $2.1 million during six years from LB Mold, an Edinburgh industrial molding company where she worked as an office manager and bookkeeper.
Greathouse resigned her post in Elizabethtown and has since been replaced in that public office.
Sentencing was on hold pending the completion of pre-sentencing reports and other paperwork that was required after Greathouse entered a guilty plea earlier this year.
Greathouse will be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt at a hearing set for 2:30 p.m. today in federal court for the Southern District of Indiana.
