Accountant pleads guilty to foundation theft

A woman who was an accountant at Munson Healthcare in northern Michigan has pleaded guilty to embezzling $1.1 million from a hospital foundation. The government said Susan Morrison spent the money for her personal enjoyment and transferred it to the bank account of her former business, the Great Lakes Bear Factory. She pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court and will be sentenced on Dec. 8. Morrison worked at Munson for about 11 years. Her duties included paying payroll taxes and making deposits into employee retirement plans.
