LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials say a former Nevada Power Co. employee has pleaded guilty to federal charges of looting more than $1.6 million from a Nevada Power bank account.
U.S. Attorney for Nevada Greg Bower said in a Wednesday release
that 38-year-old Kyle Roher of Las Vegas pleaded guilty to two
counts of wire fraud and agreed to forfeit more than $1.7 million.
Roher was indicted in April.
He was previously charged with 19 counts of wire fraud, punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each charge.
Sentencing has been set for Nov. 12.
U.S. Attorney Greg Brower in Las Vegas says Roher was a senior business analyst at Nevada Power when he embezzled money from
September 2002 to October 2006 by forging wire transfer documents.
