BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) -- An Indiana man faces up to 20 years in prison in an embezzlement case from Battle Creek.
James Korson is accused of taking $183,000 from Pyper Products. The 56-year-old from Angola, Ind., pleaded no contest to embezzlement in Calhoun County Circuit Court on Friday.
A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing.
Battle Creek police say Korson took the money between 2005 and 2009 while he was working as a controller.
The Battle Creek Enquirer reports ( ) Korson already is serving a 20-month to 15-year prison sentence after a plea to embezzling money from a Jackson County company, where he worked after leaving Pyper.
He's to be sentenced June 28 in the Battle Creek case. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
