WRENTHAM, Massachusetts — A Wrentham woman has pleaded not guilty to stealing $2.7 million from the medical supply company where she once worked.

Prosecutors say 39-year-old Laurieann Richard used the money she stole from Dale Medical Products in Plainville over several years on shopping sprees at local stores and online retailers, for gambling, dinners out and even to make payments on her Jeep.

Richard pleaded not guilty Tuesday to multiple counts of larceny and was held on $35,000 cash bail.

Prosecutors say she embezzled the money between 2007 and 2014 while she managed the company's accounts payable processes as well as the disbursement, management and payment of corporate credit cards.

Her lawyer said her family has been "devastated" by the allegations.
