Office manager admits to stealing $538k

A Colfax woman admitted Tuesday to embezzling $538,000 from the family-owned urology clinic in Pullman where she worked as a business manager.

Alicia E. Napier, 47, pleaded guilty to 14 counts of mail fraud and two counts of bank fraud in the case where she admitted diverting funds from Palouse Urology for her personal use between 2001 and 2009.

“Her mail and bank fraud scheme went undetected for so long because she was a trusted employee,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Rice wrote in a news release.

Though she likely get far less time, Napier faces up to 20 years in prison for the mail fraud and up to 30 years in prison for bank fraud when she's sentenced on Sept. 1
