Lafayette woman pleads guilty to fraud

A Lafayette woman pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing more than $500,000 from a company where she worked for years.

Bunnie Morris, 60, was an accountant and bookkeeper for Waste Auditors Inc. from 2001 to 2009 when she forged signatures on payroll, bonus and expense account checks, U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley said in a news release.

The checks were processed through two banks and totaled $579,050, Finley said.

She also negotiated and received unauthorized pay raises and bonuses, Finley said.

Morris faces up to 30 years in prison, five years of supervised release and a fine up to $1 million. Sentencing is set for June 11.

The U.S. Secret Service conducted the investigation in the case, which was prosecuted by U.S. Assistant Attorney Howard C. Parker.
